Inflatable Work Of Art Wows Austinites

Updated: Thursday, January 30 2014, 08:17 AM CST

A dazzling inflatable art display has made its way to Austin for the third year. Right now Architects of Air is setup on the west lawn of The Long Center. There you can tour the halls of Miracoco Luminarium and awe in its amazing colors that shine with sunlight.

Miracoco's center dome is the biggest ever constructed. The design was inspired by spiritual temples in India and features spiral lattices to create a display of points of light on iridescent hues. Even more amazing, the art piece is made of 11,000 square feet of uniquely produced thin plastic panels.

Architects of Air brings displays to cities across the world, but this year there are only two appearances in Texas and Austin is hosting one of them. Last year 10,000 people visited the structure in just one week.

Tour the luminarium now through February 2. Weekdays it's open from 11:00am-5:00pm and weekends 10:00am-5:00pm. Tickets are $10. Kids under 2 enter for free. Make sure to bring socks because you can't wear shoes inside. The art piece is wheelchair accessible.
