Gabriela Santiago and Nicolas Rivard

Artists Gabriela Santiago and Nicolas Rivard commemorated the cycle of commerce and community that has existed in the Hemisfair area for centuries by recreating signage of businesses that existed in the pre-1968 World’s Fair Germantown neighborhood in white neon. During Luminaria 2017, illuminated neon signage hung above contemporary interpretations of the archived businesses starting at Hemisfair Boulevard and Nueva Street.
