Man- I wish I was going to be in town for this! San Antonians need some real vibrant cultural exhibits that do not revolve around basketball or our Hispanic heritage!! I love this idea and am sad to say I won’t be in town to experience it – definitely next year though!
If you go, please come back here and let me know your thoughts about the event!
Luminaria is the first annual all day and evening celebration of San Antonio premiere artists and art organizations giving citizens of the community a chance to experience the city’s diverse cultures through observing and participating in our world-class artistic heritage. Through visual, performing, multi-media, theatre, dance, music and other artistic forms, audiences will be engaged throughout San Antonio in a free, world-class celebration of the arts.
Luminaria is intended to be a cohesive celebration of the arts through a creative atmosphere showcasing San Antonio’s diverse artistic community.
An artist-driven celebration of the arts, Luminaria is an unprecedented collaboration of over 40 non-profit organizations that will come together for 1 day to celebrate the dynamic vitality of San Antonio’s creative spirit.
Based on the success of other international celebrations such as Nuit Blanche in Paris and Noche Blanca in Madrid, no other city in Texas has attempted to coordinate continuous artistic, educational and innovative programming for a city-wide arts celebration. To further highlight the name of this event, the traditional role of the luminaria is a clever small light that conjures up creative ideas which inspires waves of innovation.
