The John Rex Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is hosting the inaugural RexFest fundraiser to support arts education at John Rex Elementary and Oklahoma City Public Schools.
RexFest is thrilled to partner with England-based Architects of Air to bring one of their world-renowned luminaria, called Albesila, to Oklahoma City. The experience of this giant inflatable sculpture is like walking inside a work of stained glass—breathtakingly beautiful, serene and contemplative.
From April 25-28, visitors can walk through the inflatable sculpture, which disperses light and color while creating a sense of wonder. The maze of winding paths and large domes will be set up at Together Square, adjacent to John Rex Charter Elementary School.
RexFest, presented by Delta Dental, seeks to raise awareness of the value of art in education and to provide supplemental funding for the arts in schools. $1 from every ticket sale will be donated to the Foundation for OKCPS to benefit art programs in OKCPS schools.
Advanced reserve time admissions are limited. If sold out, walk-up stand-by tickets can be purchased at the door.
- How much does the event cost?
Walk-up tickets are $8/kids; $10/adults; $30 for a family of four. Or, you can buy advanced tickets.
- Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Children under 3 are admitted free. Children ticket pricing is for ages 3-15. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult (at least 1 adult for 4 children). Albesila is wheelchair accessible.
- Are there any other restrictions?
Shoes are not allowed in the Luminarium unless a medical necessity (shoe covers will be provided). Visitors are asked to wear or bring socks for their visit inside Albesila.
- What’s the refund policy?
The Luminarium will be open rain or shine. Refunds will only be issued if Albesila is temporarily closed during your reservation time for an unforeseen circumstance. In that case, your purchase will be refunded in full automatically within 5-7 business days.
