LUMA Festival

Night Lights

The country’s premier projection arts festival offers an extraordinary experience. Tens of thousands show up each year to witness the transformation of downtown buildings into canvasses for dynamic stories.

LUMA Fest artists from Barcelona to Budapest handpick their architectural canvases. Using projection mapping, live animations are created exclusively to suit the characteristics of these iconic buildings every September.

Inspired by the more advanced projection artists and festivals in Europe, co-founders Nick Rubenstein and Tice Lerner decided to reinvent the wheel by “building something that was uniquely Binghamton” – a festival for artists, by artists, that pioneered storytelling through projection mapping.

The projection mapping that turns these buildings into storytellers is a fascinating intersection of art and tech you simply have to see to believe. Coming to this year’s festival? Binghamton has it all to make your trip memorable.

While you’re in town, be sure to stop by Greater Binghamton’s one-of-a-kind antique shops, fascinating museum tours and mouth-watering cider mill visits, to out-of-this-world trips to the planetarium and scenic walks through the botanical garden, Greater Binghamton’s attractions will keep you coming back again and again.
