Earlier this morning I attended the Luminaria: Arts Night press
conference where the media (and a few unaware people trying to catch an
elevator) gathered to share more about the first-of-its-kind event. I
don't know about you but I'm really excited about this event and I
truly do hope everything goes right. With a line-up that includes
symphonic, operatic, jazz, blues, ballet, international dance, hip hop,
DJ, laser lights, and film — I'd love to see how everything
is going to come together. Will the array of art be too much to take
in? Or just enough? Over 130 artists will participate in alleyways, art
will be displayed in storefronts from Alamo Plaza to Peacock Alley and
Houston at Jefferson — every imaginable street or shady
alleyway will be center stage for a slew of homegrown art. Ending the
night with a celebratory cherry on top — a fireworks finale.
Imagine 16 hours of non-stop art from morning well into the night,
activities are already being planned, and by Friday performances and
exhibition information will be available online.
