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 2015 will began on Sunday, November 29th and ran through Saturday, December 5th offering a full schedule of events and attracting more than 20,000 people to the event this year.
LUNA Fête provides the ideal opportunity to celebrate New Orleans’ creative industries in a new millennial style. On a local level this project sits at 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.
