LUMA Announces COVID Protocols for Sept. 10 Festival
A big art festival that draws tens of thousands of spectators as well as dozens of 3D projection artists from around the world to downtown Binghamton is taking steps to protect everyone from the coronavirus.
Organizers of the LUMA Projection Arts Festival September 10 and 11 say ticketholders will have to show proof of vaccination to be able to enjoy the festival without wearing a mask. Those who do not show proof of vaccination are asked to please wear a mask as per state requirements for events of this type and scale. LUMA will be issuing wristbands to those who have shown proof of vaccination.
Free tickets are available at lumafestival.com.
The groundbreaking projection-mapping performance art festival is in its seventh year. Artists from all over the world use computer programs, live-capture photography, and animation to project moving figures on Binghamton landmark structures to tell wild and fanciful tales.
LUMA is free, but crowd sizes are being controlled through the issuing of the free tickets online.
In the event of a weather emergency, September 12 has been set as rain date.
