Marking its fifth year Nuit Blanche; Toronto's annual sunset to sunrise celebration of contemporary art returns to the city to give us the best little ol' T.O. can offer.. The most amazing annual event of all things art holds some great fun & exciting memories for me. This year I can't wait to extend the span of those memories and surpass the past with even greater ones. It's the only time in the city where the life doesn't end at last call, the art exhibits and instillations start at sunset and continue all the way to sunrise (6pm - 6am). At Nuit Blanche you discover art in galleries, museums and unexpected places. From building façades and city parks to alleyways and heritage buildings, (I REMEMBER DANCING ON A TRUCK AT 12AM IN THE MIDDLE OF QUEEN STREET BLASTING TRANCE BEATS WITH A CROWD AROUND ME!!) choose from more than 130 destinations and chart your own path.. OkOKOKOK!! I definitely have to share this photo with you of my first time attending Nuit Blanche more than 3 years ago... lol..
Ok.. there are a couple more but I am so embarrassed at how I dressed that I can not show you, but above is one photo from the UofT campus up on Bloor St. then the one below is in the Distillery just after an amazing Michael Jackson thriller performance.. What an amazing time traveling the city streets with people, life and art all around.
