LUMA Lights Up Binghamton


In its second year, the LUMA Projection Arts Festival uses high-powered projectors to ‘animate’ the facades of buildings and create dynamic shows. This year also features a juried competition. Organizers Joshua Ludzki and Nick Rubenstein talk about the technique of making buildings move with light.

“LUMA, the largest projection fine arts and entertainment festival in the United States, returns on September 2nd. Last year, 25,000 people gathered in Downtown Binghamton, NY, to celebrate a bold confluence of technology and visual arts. LUMA is a festival founded by artists, for artists, with the wholehearted embrace of an entire city.

LUMA Festival is a free event that features the latest 3D projection mapping and animation technology to bring artwork to life on building facades.

Throughout the evening, starting at sundown, animations will be projected at regular intervals on five buildings throughout Downtown Binghamton. Festival-goers can move from building to building, at their own pace throughout the event, to see the projected artworks. Join us at sundown on Friday, September 2, to experience the second annual LUMA Festival.”
