MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- An inflatable art installation that offers an immersive labyrinth of color and light is taking over Mesa for nine days.
Architects of Air: Albesila is half the size of a football field and will be at Mesa's Pioneer Park from Feb. 9 to Feb. 17.
Albesila is a large-scale work of public art that is entirely inflatable. The experience of this giant inflatable sculpture is like "walking inside a work of stained glass."
Designed by British artist Alan Parkinson, Albesila can hold up to 80 people at a time and allows visitors to explore a maze of winding paths and inspiring domes.
The light- and color-filled dome-like spaces invite visitors to wander, explore, sit or lie down, and enjoy the ambiance of the art space.
People can visit the installation for 30-minute sessions between noon and 9 p.m.
Single tickets are $7 per person or four for $24 (plus additional tickets at $6). Children two years and younger are free.
Ticket holders are advised to arrive 10 minutes prior to their admission time.
Shoes are not allowed in the Albesila unless a medical necessity, in which case shoe covers will be provided. Visitors are asked to wear or bring socks during the visit inside Albesila.
