Luminaria Arts Night Shimmers

The first Luminaria on Alamo Plaza was magical.

Replicating that feeling the following years proved difficult.

But last night, organizers and artists had a new formula nailed. There was room to move and more to see and experience than you could possibly squeeze into the fleeting five hours.

And, in defiance of the predicted rain, the apocryphal Saint Apophenia, “the patron saint of fortune tellers, the mentally ill, coincidence, patternmakers and artists,” kept the clouds from crying on the crowds.
