On Saturday, April 10th, Downtown Los Angeles became an enchanting mirage of colors and shapes that transported passersby to new worlds. From 7:30 PM-10:30 PM, 7 different exhibitions combining real-world installations with projections onto 200 ft. screens, presented to more than 15,000 socially distanced spectators. The evening was hosted by Luminex, curated by NOW Art Foundation.
Hawke Media COO, Tony Delmercado, was lucky enough to be introduced to the founders and signing on to support the event instantly, stating, “We are incredibly excited about our partnership with NOW Art in welcoming people back into the heart of Los Angeles with inspiring, cutting-edge art installations featuring world-class creators”.
Likewise, Hawke Media has and always will sow its roots in Los Angeles, so the organization jumped at the opportunity to nourish those roots after such a tumultuous year. Delmercado was quoted saying, “Beautiful art in a great city with an amazing, community-centric organization provides a welcome, and much needed change of pace for Angelenos and visitors to our great city emerging from a lengthy quarantine.”
