This Month: Miracoco by Architects of Air

It’s never not fascinating to step across the threshold into one of the creations dreamed by by Architects of Air, and this month, it’s possible again when the luminarium known as Miracoco comes through town. Due to the hypersensory experience’s popularity, advance tickets are only available to Long Center members; walk-up tickets are available to the public on site. Show up, step inside and watch time and space come to a serene and blissful halt as children romp through the chambers and adults meditate, stare up in wonder and snap many an Instagram photo — this visual feast is certainly something to capture.

This Weekend: Let the “Architects of Air” Luminarium Experience Blow Your Mind

In 1992, the Architects of Air interactive light exhibit debuted outside the Sydney Opera House in Australia, and it’s been mesmerizing audiences around the globe ever since. This month, the acclaimed luminarium experience visits Austin, bringing with it a halting sense of ethereal majesty. Visitors remove their shoes and step into a large-scale, hand-made PVC structure vividly illustrating light and form in a visually stunning display throughout the elaborate journey from one end of the space to the other. Tickets are available for $8 per person on the day of visit; The Long Center proudly hosts the exhibit through January 20th.

Exhibit runs January 14-20; see the Long Center website for details.
