Arts Council of New Orleans says
Free & open to the public. Arts Council New Orleans LUNA Fête is a visionary initiative created by the Arts Council in 2014 to utilize our city’s iconic architecture as the canvas for contemporary light installation, motion graphics, and video-mapping practices to create a series of artistic large-scale outdoor architectural projection mapping installations across the city leading up to New Orleans’ 2018 Tri-Centennial. It’s mission to stimulate connectivity across sectors and to shine a light on arts in New Orleans.

Major installations this year include:

SUNDAY, NOV. 29TH TO SATURDAY, DEC. 5TH 6 -9PM NIGHTLY

New Orleans Way (Ashe Power House Theater) by OCUBO, a Portuguese artist studio specializes in interactive, participatory installations. Ocubo will support LUNA Fête’s objective to create an education initiative that engages youth in the development of new artwork working with local students to produce the installation which will premiere on the Polymnia Street facade of Ashe’ Power House Theatre during LUNA Fête 2015. The work was created in partnership with artist Terrance Osborne and students from Ashé's KUUMBA Institute and St. Martin's Episcopal School.

+ LOCAL ARTIST INSTALLATIONS ALONG OC HALEY BLVD. ALL WEEK LONG.

The Pool (Lafayette Square) by Jen Lewin Studio is an environment of giant, concentric circles created from interactive circular pads. By entering The Pool, you enter a world where play and collaborative movement create swirling effects of light and color. Imagine a giant canvas where you can paint and splash light collaboratively. As multiple users play in The Pool, their interactions become mesmerizing patterns of shifting and fading colors.
