LUNA Fête Becomes First Major Festival to Return to New Orleans

What: Arts New Orleans is hosting its 8th annual LUNA Fête, a free light, art, and technology festival. LUNA Fête’s Eighth Edition explores New Orleans’ newest greenspace, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Pedestrian Park, with art installations celebrating the natural world. 

Internationally award-winning artist Bart Kresa, known for creating Shogyo Mujo and HBO’s Game of Thrones season finale projection mapping installation will animate the Convention Center’s Hall D facade with a seven-minute projection highlighting the beauty and fragility of our planet.   

Innovative, playful, and interactive light-based artworks by artists and scientists exploring the wonders of the natural world will be spread across 7.5 acres of the new Convention Center Pedestrian Park for visitors to safely enjoy via social distancing. 

During the festival, visitors can also explore three new permanent light-based installations created by world-caliber artists commissioned by the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center for the Pedestrian Park. 

LUNA Fête’s past favorites include an immersive projection experience by The Krewe of Vaporwave which will celebrate the cosmic universe and a nightly Arts Market New Orleans for visitors to support local artists and pick up holiday gifts.
