THE RAYGUN GOTHIC ROCKETSHIP

A Five Ton Crane Arts Group collaboration

The Raygun Gothic Rocketship  (2009) is a grant funded large-scale art installation created by the Five Ton Crane Arts Group. Designed and managed by collaborators David Shulman, Nathaniel Taylor, and Sean Orlando, this gleaming, retro-futuristic immersive rocketship sculpture was installed from 2010-2013 at Pier 14, San Francisco. It was refurbished and permanently installed in 2017 over Rocket Ice Cream at the Wings over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Colorado.
