Will there be great art at Nuit Blanche 2018

The all night art fest has posted their projects planned for the September 29, 2018 and I will have to study the guides to plan my night's illuminated ride. Nothing jumps out on first glance, hopefully that will change with a more in depth review of the more than 75 art installations. I don't think they will have another Honest Ed Alley this year! And I don't really need great art, something interesting or bold and beautiful will do just fine.

"Nuit Blanche Toronto is a free, annual, city-wide celebration of contemporary art, produced by the City of Toronto in collaboration with Toronto’s arts community. For one sleepless night, from sunset to sunrise, the familiar is discarded and Toronto is transformed into an artistic playground for a series of exhilarating contemporary art experiences in unexpected public spaces."

The fun starts Saturday night at 7:02pm and lasts all night long until 7:00am Sunday morning, although I usually am done by 4 or 5am. I will be getting my light bike ready for the journey so if you see a really bright bike it could be me.

On the opposing side of the official program is the anti-Nuit Blanche known as Les Rues Des Refuses which puts on some very interesting projects. I will keep my eye open for news of their 2018 program, sometimes it is very last minute.

The following roads will be closed for Nuit Blanche 2018
Borough Drive; Closed between Brian Harrison Way and Town Centre Court starting at 8 pm, Saturday, September 29 until 9 am, Sunday, September 30.
