-Luminaria to highlight original creative works with focus on theme of light-

Luminaria 2012 has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2012 at HemisFair Park in San Antonio, TX. Last year, the footprint for Luminaria expanded, allowing ample room for artists’ works to be featured throughout HemisFair Park. The enlarged footprint will remain the same for Luminaria 2012.

Since Luminaria began over four years ago, it has become the largest single-day arts event in South Texas, attracting over 310,000 attendees in 2011.

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.
