Navigate the dog days of COVID-19 by exploring new artworks from the six 2020 Luminaria Artist Foundation Grantees.
From Wednesday, October 21 through Friday, October 30, get a COVID-conscious sneak peek at the grantees’ projects through this works-in-process series. Discover Mark McCoin’s Isolated and On Display; Pamela Martinez’s Teletextile: Artemisia – Touching at a Distance; Octavio Quintanilla’s Frontexto(ing); Jenelle Esparza’s Through the Threshold; Raul Rene Gonzalez’s Artists, Parents, & Oil Paints; and Violeta De Leon Davila’s They Taught You Wrong: Metanoia – A Transformative Change.
To further the activation of equitable and expansive accessibility to the arts, Luminaria has collaborated with six community partners whose generosity helped catapult this creative experiment into the real world: San Antonio River Authority, Devil’s River Whiskey Distillery, San Antonio Public Library, Majestic Theatre, San Antonio Botanical Garden, and VIA Metropolitan Transit.
All exhibits are free and open to the public except for Jenelle Esparza’s installation at San Antonio Botanical Garden. However, there will be free entry at the Botanical Garden for Bexar County residents on Wednesdays, October 21 and 28 from 9AM to 7PM and on Saturday, October 24 from 10AM to 1PM. Generously funded by the Luminaria Artist Foundation. Please register for this offer upon arrival at the Botanical Garden admissions kiosk.
