Pic of the Day: Skywalkers Parade

Back in 2006 art collaborative FriendsWithYou opened Art Basel Miami with an event that rivaled the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Toyota Scion commissioned FWY to produce Skywalkers with a set of 18 balloons, ranging from 5 to 60 feet, celebrating our solar system’s “formal acceptance into the universe.” The balloons dotted the Miami Beach sky with the help of  various artists like Mumbleboy, Paper Rad and David Choe and 300 volunteers.

Note: If you’re going to be in Miami for this year’s Art Basel, check out the grand opening of the FriendsWithYou boutique on December 1st; the flagship store will carry limited-edition merchandise including apparel, fine art, sculptures, prints, and collectible toys.

More gorgeous balloons after the jump.
