Luna Fete NOLA 2018 Kicks Off

Along Lafayette Street later tomorrow, you may notice some amazing and dazzling spectacles of light bemusing pedestrians and drivers alike. This will be the official opening of Luna Fete 2018, as presented by the City of New Orleans. But, unable to keep in the excitement for long, a new event on the docket will kick off pre-event festivities.

Sound Collage will unveil a new LED Exterior Light Installation 6 PM tonight at the New Orleans Jazz Museum! Presented by our Jazz Museum and Arts Council, Sound Collage’s celebration of Light and Magic is free and open to the public from tonight until this Friday, from 6 – 9 PM each evening.

An exhibit, From the Opera House to the Warehouse: 300 Years of New Orleans Music, will open things up. Featuring food and drinks (available for purchase), Sound Collage will see illuminated installations, digital sculptures, animated art and music to engage and inspire everyone. Check out the schedule below, and be wowed:
