Sphere XO Student Design Challenge


Winner Selection

More than 100 finalists were selected, and the eight winners – four selected by the public and four selected by judges, including professional artists Refik Anadol and Michela Picchi, both of whom have previously designed for the Exosphere – were revealed during a special ceremony at Sphere on July 4, 2024.  The winning students’ artwork debuted on the Exosphere on July 4, and will run in rotation throughout the summer.



In addition to seeing their work displayed on the Exosphere, winning high school and UNLV students received a $10,000 educational scholarship from Sphere, while winning elementary and middle school students earned a $10,000 donation from Sphere for their school’s art program to further art education in public schools, along with tickets for their entire school to attend The Sphere Experience™.
