Luminaria 2010

Release Date: 2010-03-10

With Luminaria coinciding with CAM (and St. Patrick’s Day festivities) this year, downtown is sure to look and feel like a three-ring art circus. First, you’ll want to print out an event map and schedule by visiting luminariasa.org/schedule. This will help you devise a plan of attack (with parking being the first battle). Lighting installations illuminating the facades of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and the Magik Theatre will bookend a magical artwalk through the trails of La Villita. Performance and art of every imaginable flavor can be found around any given corner. What we’re looking forward to: Installations by the UTSA New Media program, SAY Sí students, and hordes of forward-thinking artists; live performances by AtticRep, Ballet San Antonio, Hyperbubble, Los Texmaniacs, and Conjunto Heritage Taller; and a highly anticipated 3-D light show under the HemisFair arch. In a nutshell, it’s one night only, it’s free, it’s kid-friendly, and you’ll be sorry if you miss it. Free, 6pm-midnight, S. Alamo between Market and Durango, luminariasa.org
