Feature story: Scotiabank Nuit Blanche celebrates five years
Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, a free city-wide sunset-to-sunrise celebration of contemporary art, returned on October 2. For one sleepless night, Toronto was transformed into an artistic playground, as contemporary art installations were found in unlikely places throughout the city. 2010 marks the five-year milestone of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche and this year’s event offered an opportunity to look back and celebrate the successes of the first four years.
