LUNA (Light Up NOLA Arts) Fête is a visionary initiative created by the Arts Council of New Orleans in 2014 to utilize our city’s iconic architecture as the canvas for contemporary light installations, motion graphics, and video-mapping practices. Its goal--the creation of a series of artistic large-scale outdoor architectural projection mapping installations across the city leading up to New Orleans’ 2018 Tri-Centennial. Its mission is to stimulate connectivity across sectors and to shine a light on arts in New Orleans.
NOW was created by OCUBU (a Portuguese artist studio that specializes in interactive, participatory installations), in partnership with artist Terrance Osborne and students from Ashé’s Kuumba Institute and St. Martin’s Episcopal School.
