Luminaria captures imaginations at Hemisfair

by Ben OlivoNovember 11, 2018

Thousands explored Hemisfair Saturday night for the latest edition of Luminaria. At the main entrance on Alamo Street, the main stage hosted a who's who of San Antonio musical acts from Buttercup to Cadillac Muzik. Next to the Convention Center, performance artists Christina Gonzalez and Andrew Salinas twirled around to beats by The AM Project. The masked pair of Verena Gaudy and Martín C. Rodríguez roamed around whipping, in playful ways, neon whips. People entered Justin Eastman's domed installation and looked up at what appeared to be a gateway to the heavens. This kind of interaction played throughout the night despite the chilly weather.

Luminaria concludes today with art workshops and brunches, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hemisfair; and a performance by chamber ensemble Agarita and artist Chuck Drew, 4 p.m. at Mission San Jose. Visit Luminaria's website for more info.
