San Antonio celebrated Luminaria this past Saturday night -- it's the annual free art free-for-all in the center of the city, taking up most of HemisFair Park with music, dance, visual arts installations and lots of illumination. The evening has its challenges and, inherent in the project, a sort of slap-dash feel to some of the offerings, but the 350,000 people who attended seemed pretty happy with the whole thing!
My favorite part of the evening is the lights, big theatrical gobos on many of the buildings, lit-up installations and illuminated window shows. Here are a few photos from my iPad excursion:
