“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.
