LUMA ‘Southern Light Project’ is an entry by donation event, showcasing a curated collection of stunning light sculptures and installations with a focus on the transformation of space, public interaction, art, culture and education.
Queenstown’s unique alpine canvas will be used as a giant amphitheatre for local, national and international talent to paint with light.
Following very successful events in previous years with thousands of visitors flocking to see the show, this year’s Luma will again be held across the long Queen’s birthday weekend in June.
Light installations and sculptures by New Zealand artists will sit on the lakefront and in the beautiful Queenstown Gardens. The sculptures and art will illuminate as the sun sets from 5pm to 10 pm, a stunning spectacle backed by Queenstown’s iconic alpine vistas.
A non-profit collaboration between artists, designers and community-minded folk have made the festival possible.
