It’s almost December in New Orleans which means it is the season for light festivals! I am going to have several projected light-art installations during the month so make sure to come out and say hi.
12/2-4 Sound Collage
First up is Sound Collage, the annual fundraising event for the New Orleans Jazz Museum in the old US Mint, during which my work Vivant will be playing in their Education Center. The space has recently been renovated and it looks great.
Sound Collage runs all weekend, but you can pick up a ticket to the Improvisations Gala on Friday night (with live music, food, and more) at this link.
Supernova is a free light-based art exhibit and community celebration presented in the Plaza on the Lafitte Greenway. After the success of their inaugural event in 2020, this year looks to be even bigger (and of course better).
Walk this ‘way is my contribution to this year’s festival, an opportunity for viewers to see themselves virtually travel along the length of the greenway. It’s free and fun and this year there will be an arts market, music, food trucks, and even a farmers market on Thursday in addition to the art.
12/16-18 LUNA Fête
The New Orleans Arts Council’s annual festival of light, art, and technology is back for 2021! A lot of information is still forthcoming, but I will be presenting an installation titled Among the Stars as part of this year’s festival.
If you can’t wait until December, and want something to check out in the meantime, be sure to check out LUNA Lagniappe at the Salon Gallery in the Canal Place Mall which hosts a small collection of light-based art, including my work How the Light Gets In, from local artists and is currently up and running Thursdays through Sundays. Tickets can be purchased at https://salonartiststudios.org/ or at the door.
There are a lot of great events coming up and I am looking forward to seeing everyone out and about at the festivals!
