Once a year, Toronto puts on one of the biggest art festivals in the world. Hundreds of thousands of people will take to the streets between 7:00pm and 7:00am on Saturday, October 4 to view installations, art pieces, videos, floats and performance pieces. Scotiabank’s Nuit Blanche is an overnight art adventure exploring and celebrating art in its most contemporary form. This festival features hundreds of artists from all across the globe, showing their diverse cultures and values.
On October 5, 2013, I had the pleasure of staying up late to experience the annual festival. While walking around downtown Toronto in its entirety, I saw artwork of all sizes, mediums and creativeness. Below are a few images I was able to capture from last year’s successful event.
If you’re in town this weekend (and want to spend your Saturday night enjoying the last hints of humidity in the air while pondering whether or not what you’re looking at is actually art), check out the schedule and locations for this year’s festival on the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche website.
