  • The Mirazozo luminarium will be open at UCA from Thursday through Saturday.

Noon. University of Central Arkansas. Free.

I was a little unclear about what this thing was at first, but I think I've got it now and it sounds pretty rad. It's basically a big series of interconnected inflatable structures that are lit up with all kinds of awesomely colorful psychedelic swirliness and you walk around inside of it and just bask in the vibrant, warm wonder of it all. The firm that builds these things and tours them around the world is called Architects of Air.

Here's how they describe it: "Architects of Air seeks to bring a visual surprise and excitement into the environment and to create the optimum conditions where people can be moved to a sense of wonder through the particular phenomenon of luminous colour." Righteous. People love glowing things. There was a smaller version of something like this at Wakarusa and those folks could not get enough of it.

It's going to be set up in front of McAlister Hall and will be open noon-6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. There will also be performances inside the luminarium from CORE Performance Company, which has chapters in Atlanta and Houston.
