LUMA Festival looks to donations to help keep Binghamton event running

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The LUMA Festival is asking some of the thousands of people who enjoy the free event to help cover the expenses.

LUMA is a projection arts festival scheduled for Friday September 1st in downtown Binghamton.

In its 3rd year, the festival has moved to focus largely on three historic buildings that surround the domed courthouse lawn.

Organizers are seeking donations to a Kickstarter campaign to help cover the costs of the international projection mapping artists and the expensive projectors for their animations.

Co-Founder Tice Lerner says the crowd will be amazed by what they see.

"Many of the big festivals around the world, many of the artists that went to those festivals are now coming here. In fact, one of the ones from New York City, Light Harvest, is one of those animators that have shown in one of the biggest in the world in Australia, but they're doing arguably one of their best pieces ever done right here," said Lerner.

Lerner says LUMA needs to reach its Kickstarter goal of $25,000 by this weekend.

You can donate to the Kickstarter at this link.
