Arts Council Lights Up NOLA Arts
A large-scale, open-air video and sound installation
LUNA (Light Up NOLA Arts) Fête is a visionary initiative created by the Arts Council New Orleans in 2014 to utilize our city’s iconic architecture as the canvas for contemporary light installation, motion graphics, and video-mapping practices to create a series of artistic large-scale outdoor architectural projection mapping installations across the city leading up to New Orleans’ 2018 Tri-Centennial. It’s mission to stimulate connectivity across sectors and to shine a light on the arts in New Orleans.
Free and open to the public, LUNA Fête 2016 will began on Wednesday, December 7th running 6 – 9 PM nightly through Saturday, December 11th and feature a roster of international, national, and local artists.
LUNA Fête provides the ideal opportunity to celebrate New Orleans’ creative industries, highlighting the intersection of art, architecture, technology, film, community engagement, and tourism – with the plan to ignite a movement that stimulates cross-sector relationships and collaboration leading up to New Orleans Tri-Centennial Celebration. LUNA Fête is a family-friendly outdoor spectacle consistent with New Orleans tradition of street-based celebration that inspires awe and connecting people to a new era of contemporary art.
