For over 300 years San Antonio has been a crossroads between cultures. In 2014, Luminaria celebrates San Antonio's heritage by presenting "Between North & South", an inspiring mix of local and international talent. The festival expands to two nights of art, music and performance, and adds its first ever daytime events; a provocative afternoon of discussion chaired by the Western Arts Alliance. In conjunction with Luminara, Blue Star Contemporary will install pop-up exhibitions at El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel in the Coronado Ballroom. Artists include Mat Kubo, Cathy Cunningham-Little, Jason Reed, and selected artists from the UTSA New Media Collective. El Tropicano will also be selling refreshments throughout the weekend, and will provide restrooms to those patrons. Not to mention, Blue Star Members will have access to a "VIP Lounge Area" so they can kickback and relax.
