This weekend is one for the art lovers. Starting on Friday is the Greenpoint Open Studios featuring a weekend full of art throughout the neighborhood. And then on Saturday night is the exciting Bring To Light Nuit Blanche festival. A Nuit Blanche is an all night arts festival of installations and performances celebrating the magic and luminance of light. Nuit Blanche events enliven cities all around the globe, but there has never been one in New York.
Projection art, interactive media, sound installation and performance, all dealing with the properties of light, will illuminate the industrial Greenpoint waterfront from sundown to midnight as part of New York’s first-ever Nuit Blanche festival. Bring to Light corresponds with other Nuit Blanches around the world as well as Greenpoint Open Studios weekend and will be a time for visitors to engage in a unique nighttime New York experience.
