Fremont Arts Council’s
2016 Luminata Art Grants
Deadline: Friday, September 9th, 2016, by midnight
The Luminata Art Grant Fund supports the development of art and performance for Luminata Lantern Festival held at Green Lake Park, Wednesday, September 21st, on the evening of the Autumnal Equinox.
Luminata is production of the Fremont Arts Council (FAC), a community-based celebration arts organization. We value volunteer-ism; community participation; artistic expression; and the sharing of arts skills.
Luminata Lantern Festival is the Fall event of the FAC. We celebrate the season of balance, the solar autumn equinox with a gathering of community for a lantern procession around Green Lake Park. The procession culminates with more art, live acoustic music and hot cider. Luminata is a family friendly, nighttime event from 7:00PM- 10:00PM.
In an age of mass culture, a special kind of courage is needed to bring creative self-expression into the public arena. To support this artistic courage, the FAC has created the Luminata Art Grant Fund is to support artists in their efforts to create inspirational illuminated artwork to the public as we celebrate the Autumnal Equinox.
Green Lake Park is a beautiful urban park with a meandering path around a large lake. The Art Council encourages artists to consider the park field clearings, trees, and lake along the procession route for illuminated art installations.
