It's almost here!

Posted By on Wed, Jan 23, 2008 at 12:00 AM

Earlier this morning I attended the Luminaria: Arts Night press conference where the media (and a few unaware people trying to catch an elevator) gathered to share more about the first-of-its-kind event. I don't know about you but I'm really excited about this event and I truly do hope everything goes right. With a line-up that includes symphonic, operatic, jazz, blues, ballet, international dance, hip hop, DJ, laser lights, and film — I'd love to see how everything is going to come together. Will the array of art be too much to take in? Or just enough? Over 130 artists will participate in alleyways, art will be displayed in storefronts from Alamo Plaza to Peacock Alley and Houston at Jefferson — every imaginable street or shady alleyway will be center stage for a slew of homegrown art. Ending the night with a celebratory cherry on top — a fireworks finale.

Imagine 16 hours of non-stop art from morning well into the night, activities are already being planned, and by Friday performances and exhibition information will be available online.

Here's a look at a possible exhibit at Luminaria by project band Fields of Forel.

And also Bill FitzGibbons LED project.

Check back on Friday once the schedule is up, I'll do a run down and see what everyone's opinion is on the line-up.

... and now your moment of random Luminaria-inspired art
