The art world’s biggest names were supposed to create iconic attachments for the amusement park, which was opened in 1987 for three months.
Drake has assured $100m of his providence to support the reboot of this art carnival.

At first, Hockney created a captivated forest installation on a temporary pavilion construction. Then, the artist André Heller cooperated with 32 artists who designed colorful and indigenous sculptures and installations for the project. Jean-Michael Basquiat created a Ferris wheel composed of his drawings, and Haring designed a carousel painted with his cartoon characters and symbols.
Until Drake, and his arts and company DreamCrew became involved, the installations wasted 15 years locked up in a park in Texas.
The rapper Aubrey Drake Graham and the director Michael Goldberg planned to restore the park’s artworks and prepare for a global tour. Here is what Drake said:
When I first heard about Luna Luna, I was blown away. It’s such a unique and special way to experience art. This is a big idea and opportunity that centres around what we love most: bringing people together.
