Luminaria is an annual event tied to the arte of la onda. For one night of the year, the gente of San Anto gathers together under the stars to take in art from local filmmakers, artists and performers. However, this year was all of that with the addition of a tribute to the legendary artist Adan Hernandez who we recently lost. Heading this annual tradition, which began in part to former Mayor Phil Hardberger, is now run by Yadhira Lozano, Jesse Borrego and Krysta Jones. The event took place this past weekend and it was filled with people in our beautiful city. Old or young, Luminaria is a sight to see for all. Being a contemporary arts festival lends to the eye of every beholder. There is something for everyone at the annual art festival and it is gratis for all! One exhibit we saw was created by two local artists such as Nain Leon and Joao Quiroz who spent six months working on an installment that focused on pollution in the ocean. They did this by using hundreds of water bottles donated over several months to bring focus to the conditions of the ocean and the usage of lithium batteries and how it affects the people in our world. Another exhibit was a larger than life ofrenda with Dia de los Muertos art along the walls which immediately brought me back to my roots and pride of my heritage. These are just two exhibits among many and they change annually. I would absolutely recommend to everyone that you go and see the arte that our gente has to offer.
