San Antonio to celebrate 5th Annual Luminaria: Arts Come to Light on May 5
The event, originally slated for March 10, 2012, was postponed due to inclement weather.

SAN ANTONIO, TX.- Luminaria representatives announced updates for the 5th Annual Luminaria: Arts Come to Light, scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2012 from 7:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. at HemisFair Park in San Antonio.

“Excitement for the upcoming 5th Annual Luminaria is growing,” says Richard Rosen, Artistic Director of Luminaria. “As we prepare for Luminaria, our city leaders and our selected artists are looking forward to showcasing the artistic talent from our community, to the rest of the country and beyond.”

The event, originally slated for March 10, 2012, was postponed due to inclement weather. With the exception of a select number of artists who are unable to participate due to previously scheduled commitments, the majority of the original selected artists are all confirmed. The Opening Ceremony will be held near the Instituto Cultural de México and the clock tower in the center of HemisFair Park.

For the first time, attendees will be able to experience Luminaria like never before with Luminaria Live, developed by title sponsor, Rackspace Hosting. Luminaria Live is an interactive guide to be used with mobile devices that has information on the event, the artists and more. Additionally, VIA will offer Park & Ride services from the Crossroads and Madla Transit Centers to Luminaria, between 5:30 p.m. and 1:30 a.m.

Luminaria has elevated the food fare, giving patrons a true culinary experience in two food areas. Food offerings will include eclectic cuisine, barbecue, Mexican food, gourmet food trucks and more.

Luminaria is San Antonio’s annual celebration of art and artists. This year marks the 5th Anniversary of the city-wide art event. Held annually and overseen by San Antonio’s creative leaders, Luminaria is a free event that showcases all art forms in an outdoor setting in downtown San Antonio. Luminaria spotlights the region’s cultural assets for local citizens and visitors alike and is made possible through the generosity of artists, arts organizations, volunteers, and public and private donations. Luminaria officially launched in 2008 and garnered attendance from over 310,000 last year. Luminaria is San Antonio’s adaptation of “White Nights”, originally conceived in Paris, France in 2002, to bring contemporary art to the masses in public spaces, while inspiring dialogue and engaging the public to examine its significance and impact on public space.
