Arts Council New Orleans Annual Festival of Art + Light + Technology
LUNA Fête is a visionary initiative created by the Arts Council New Orleans in 2014 to utilize New Orleans iconic landscape as the canvas for outdoor, public artworks created with light and technology. This annual outdoor spectacle connects New Orleans’ tradition of street-based celebration with connecting people to a new era of contemporary art.
An official New Orleans Tricentennial signature event, LUNA Fête 2017 will take place on December 6 – 9th as an opening to New Orleans 2018 Tricentennial celebration. This multi-day celebration is free and open to the public and features illuminated installations, digital sculptures, video-mapping projections, and art animated by technology – intended to engage and inspire audiences of all ages.
In 2016, more than 50,000 attendees visited downtown New Orleans to view work by international and local artists highlighting the intersection of art, architecture, technology, community engagement, and tourism.
