About

The inaugural Sphere XO Student Design Challenge is a collaboration between Sphere and the Clark County School District (CCSD) and University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) that has provided more than 100,000 Clark County-based students, ranging from elementary school through college, with an opportunity to create art for the Exosphere, Sphere’s LED exterior. It marks two noteworthy firsts for the venue – both the first time the general public will have a say in what appears on the Exosphere, and the first time members of the general public have created art for the exterior of the venue.

Winners Selection

Four winners – one from each student group – will be chosen by public voting, and four winners – one from each student group – will be selected by professional artists who have previously designed for the Exosphere, including Refik Anadol and Michela Picchi.
