Months of preparation culminate in June with the Omaha arrival of Architects of Air, a world-renowned visual experience that will captivate crowds in Midtown Crossing’s Turner Park.
WOWT Channel 6 for the Heartland is proud to sponsor the Architects of Air “luminarium”. A luminarium is a monumental inflatable structure, a dazzling maze of tunnels and soaring domes that immerses visitors in the beauty of light and color.
The installation is made of panels of uniquely-produced plastic, fastened on-site to occupy nearly 11,000 square feet. It is anchored and then, in just 20 minutes, inflated to its full size. Assembly requires six people and the owner’s supervision. Then, an impressive array of equipment, including two generators and four 30-ton air conditioner units, will set to work inflating, powering and cooling the luminarium.
Since 1992, over two million visitors in 37 countries across five continents have experienced the spectacular, luminous world of Architects of Air. This will be the exhibit’s first time in Omaha, as well as the entire Midwest region.
It will be open to the public June 23-30 from noon to 6 pm on weekdays and 11 am to 6 pm on weekends. Tickets ($5 per person) will be available for same day purchase at Midtown Crossing at 32nd and Farnam Street. Children 2 and under are free. For group rates and availability, please call (402) 351-5954.
