San Antonio to Welcome Artists at Luminaria

San Antonio will once again showcase art and artists with its annual celebration, Luminaria, taking place on Saturday, May 5, in historic HemisFair Park in downtown San Antonio from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Luminaria, Texas’ single-day arts event, this year celebrates its fifth anniversary and will feature original artworks created by more than 80 local and national artists against the backdrop of one of San Antonio’s most revered historical and cultural landmarks.

“Luminaria is San Antonio’s signature art event because it showcases local artists in a way that involves the entire San Antonio community as well as regional, national and even international audiences,” said San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro. “On this fifth anniversary, we are committed to helping provide an extraordinary experience that highlights the creative culture of our city.”

Luminaria began in 2008, modeled after similar arts events in Paris, Madrid, and Toronto. Artworks – highlighting the six artistic disciplines of music, dance, media arts (film), literary arts, theatre and visual arts – focus on light as a central theme.

For the first time, attendees will be able to experience Luminaria Live, developed by title sponsor, Rackspace Hosting. Luminaria Live is an interactive guide to be used with mobile devices that has information on the event, the artists and more.
