Luminata Lantern Festival coming soon, grants for artists available

The yearly Luminata Lantern Festival is coming up soon, and the Fremont Arts Council has put out a call for artists.

Luminata, happening September 21st, is the annual autumn celebration and lantern procession around Green Lake Park. Happening at night, the procession culminates with acoustic music, hot cider, and an array of dazzling, glowing art in the park until 10pm.

The Fremont Arts Council has a call out for artists, musicians, and other performers, with grants available for projects.

“Do you have an illuminated creation or performance piece swimming in your mind, in progress, or created and itching to get out into the world?” the Arts Council writes on their website.

The Luminata Art Grant Fund will provide funding for projects ranging in scale from $100 to $500, and can cover artists’ fees, materials, equipment purchase or rental, travel, and transportation. Grant applications will be accepted until August 18th by midnight, and art proposals are due September 12th.

The Fremont Arts Council says artists should consider park field clearings, trees, and the lake along the procession route for illuminated installations.
