Luminaria 2014 to be a 2-day festival in November

Nov. 7-8 in and around Riverwalk North

SAN ANTONIO – Now in its seventh year, Luminaria is expanding to a two-day festival -- in November.

The annual celebration of art and artists is slated for Nov. 7-8 in and around Riverwalk North, between the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts and the Southwest School of Art.

"We decided to move the date to early November, which will allow more people to enjoy the event," said Luminaria Board President Liz Tullis. "Also, over the past six years, the event was staged in different areas around San Antonio including HemisFair, Houston Street and Alamo Street. It never was intended to stay in one place."

And by expanding to two days, Tullis said, Luminaria offers additional exposure to the works of artists from around the world.

"Luminaria represents a tremendous amount of work for everyone involved, especially the many artists who participate," Tullis said. "Expanding the festival gives artists a chance to showcase their work for a longer period, and it gives San Antonians and tourists more opportunities to experience Luminaria."

Throughout Luminaria, international artists will share the stage with San Antonio's creative talent to create murals, light and video works, and live performances.
