Photo Gallery: Museum of Art Lights Up for Luminaria Take Two

Print Share on LinkedIn Comments More

If anything was a good indicator that the Luminaria Take Two event at the San Antonio Museum of Art was a popular place Friday night, it had to be the parking.  Cars filed down Avenue B for blocks, taking up every  inch of asphalt.  Finally, it seems, Luminaria has broken its bad weather curse and succeeded in doing what it does best– giving the people art.

Performances left and right were sprinkled with fascinating exhibits of light and projected film that filled the grounds of the historic museum, with brightness and flashes of brilliance.  Artists such as Alyson Alonso could be heard serenading an intimate crowd in a secretive outdoor passageway, a complete opposite of Sam Lerma, who was being projected across an entire courtyard.

This was a one night only performance, but Luminaria has a couple more events up its sleeve.  The next one takes place Wednesday Feb. 24 at The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts from 7-10 p.m.

  1. This was so much better than Luminaria was a year ago when it was near the Tropicana Hotel and WOAI studios. I took an out-of-town friend then, and I felt it was a failure as an outing and in relation to the previous Luminarias. (I’ve attended everyone of them.) This was creative, had plenty to find, plenty to enjoy, etc. I especially like that it lived up to its name with many large uses of patterns of lights.
