Presented in partnership with Mesa's Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities
Albesila is a large-scale work of public art to be installed at Mesa’s Pioneer Park Feb. 9-17, 2019. The visitor’s 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.
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).
Members on sale Dec. 12.
General on sale: Dec. 14.
