Katena Luminarium - Architects of Air

APRIL 17 - 21 ; Daily from 1pm - 7pm
UNT University Union South Lawn
Admission is free for all guests

Come visit the Katena Luminarium, an inflatable sculpture that offers visitors a sensory wonderland in which they can happily lose themselves- a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes that meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of color and light.

Since 1992 more than 3 million visitors in over 40 countries across 5 continents have been welcomed into Architects of Air’s monumental luminaria, immersed in radiant color that comes simply from daylight shining through the luminarium’s fabric.

From the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the luminaria designed by company founder Alan Parkinson are inspired by natural forms, geometric solids, Islamic and Gothic architecture. Each new creation is a maze of winding paths and inspiring domes where the visitors may lose themselves in sensory bliss.


KATENA is accessible to wheelchair users

Guests may park hourly at $2/hour at the Highland Street Garage, 620 Central Ave, Denton TX, 76201

About the Fine Arts Series

The Mary Jo and V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series began as the Lyceum Series in 1903 when UNT was North Texas Normal College. The series has grown over the past century while never losing sight of its purpose. In all our endeavors we hope to enrich UNT students' lives and provide a higher quality of life here at North Texas.

As the Fine Arts Series enters its 113th season, we hope to entertain and educate our campus community by presenting an exciting series of performing, visual, and literary arts events. All UNT Fine Arts Series performances are presented free of charge to UNT students.  In honor of the commitment that Dr. and Mrs. Rawlins have for UNT students and the Arts, the students at UNT proudly propose to rename this series The Mary Jo and V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series​.
