EVENT IS 6pm-10pm nightly!
LUNA Lounge presented by Sonder is a heated oasis nestled onto our main campus in Lafayette Square. Inside, guests will find food and drinks from some of the best names in dining in the city including Cavan Restaurant & Bar, Barrel Proof, Longway Tavern, Meauxbar, and Sylvain. Guests will have access to private restrooms, and special art installations.
LUNA Fête is the exemplification of our Mission. By stimulating connectivity across sectors, we shine a light on New Orleans and demonstrate how Art Transforms Communities. This festival is a cultural exchange that fosters both international economic stimulus and increased awareness of and opportunities for the local arts community.
LUNA Fête illuminates the intersection of art, architecture, technology, film, community engagement, and tourism. The project creates the next generation of family-friendly outdoor spectacle that is consistent with the New Orleans community and street-based celebration. It inspires awe and connects people to a new era of contemporary art.
Envisioned as a community-wide experiential event, LUNA Fête began on November 29, 2014, by illuminating Gallier Hall with a sweeping outdoor projection of light and video by France-based La Maison Productions. Ashe’s Powerhouse Theater was activated by Portugal-based OCUBO during the 2015 week-long exhibition. Each year the Arts Council grows with international partnerships and expands the number of both local and visiting installations.
