LumenARRT!, Halloween night, Biddeford, 2020.

LumenARRT! was founded five years ago as a project of the Union of Maine Visual Artists (UMVA) to artistically amplify the work of progressive non-profits in the state of Maine. Our large-scale video projections create a visual experience and like electronic graffiti, bring awareness to issues of social, economic, and environmental justice.

Our collective involves diverse local artists, making decisions together and partnering with community groups. Recent projections have highlighted issues like climate change (with 350 Maine and Extinction Rebellion), anti-racism (Black Lives Matter and NAACP), immigrant rights (Immigrant Resource Center of Maine), economic justice (Southern Maine Workers’ Center), getting out the vote and supporting the USPS (Indivisible Maine, League of Women Voters, Heart of Biddeford and more). We have projected on everything from buildings to oil tanks, to people, to lighthouses, and often add sculptures and music to make our events more engaging.
