Albesila, an immersive labyrinth of color and light, is a large-scale work of public art to be installed at Mesa’s Pioneer Park Feb. 9-17, 2019. The experience of this giant inflatable sculpture is like walking inside a work of stained glass—breathtakingly beautiful, serene and contemplative. Designed by British artist Alan Parkinson, Albesila can hold up to 80 people at one time and provides a unique experience filled with color, ambient music and wonder.
With a footprint half the size of a football field, the light- and color-filled dome-like spaces invite visitors to wander, explore or sit or lie down and enjoy the ambiance of the space. Explore the maze of winding paths and inspiring domes and lose yourself in sensory bliss.
Visitors can visit the luminarium for 30-minute sessions, noon — 9 p.m. each day, except Feb. 9 when the installation will close to visits at 8 p.m. to host a special ticketed event Color + Light Party. Single tickets for Albesila are $7 per person, or 4 for $24 (plus additional tickets at $6).
