Luminaria: Arts Night in San Antonio
Luminaria includes the collaboration of over 80 artists and non-profit arts organizations, spotlighting six artistic disciplines: music, dance, media arts (film), literary arts, theatre and visual arts from local, national and international artists.
Luminaria is San Antonio's annual celebration of contemporary art and artists. This year marks the 5th Anniversary of the city-wide art event. Luminaria is a free event that showcases all art forms in an outdoor setting in downtown San Antonio. Luminaria spotlights the region's cultural assets for local citizens and visitors alike and is made possible through the generosity of artists, arts organizations, volunteers, and public and private donations. Luminaria officially launched in 2008.
Luminaria's name is San Antonio's adaptation of "White Nights", originally conceived in Paris, France in 2002, in an attempt to bring contemporary art to the masses in public spaces, while inspiring dialogue and engaging the public to examine its significance and impact on public space.
