Nuit Blanche New York 2011
OCTOBER 1ST, 2011, NEW YORK CITY
6:00 pm to Midnight.
Bring to Light is a free nighttime public festival of art in New York City that takes place simultaneously with “nuit blanche” events in cities around the world. Inviting emerging and established artists to make site-specific installations of light, sound, performance and projection art, the event creates an immersive spectacle for thousands of visitors to re-imagine public space and civic life. Bring to Light will transform streets, parks and the industrial waterfront of Greenpoint, Brooklyn set against dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline.
Nuit Blanche (French for “white night” or “all-nighter”) is a global network of locally-organized nighttime contemporary art events. Originating in Paris in 2001, the nuit blanche concept now involves millions of people in cities around the world.
The East River Ferry runs regular service to the India Street Pier in Greenpoint from Manhattan, Queens and several locations in Brooklyn. Join our mailing list or check back here to learn about ferry service on the night of the event.
