New Release – City of Toronto

From Saturday, October 4 from 6:53 p.m. to sunrise on Sunday, October 5, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche will transform the city of Toronto into an all-night celebration of contemporary art, featuring more than 120 art projects created by almost 400 local, national and international artists.

Heading into its ninth consecutive year, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche is one of the largest contemporary art events in North America. Last year, the event attracted an audience of more than one million people, including 190,000 out-of-town visitors, and generated an economic impact of $39.5 million.

This significant Toronto event would not be possible without the continued support of sponsors Scotiabank, Concord CityPlace, H&M, Renova, Subaru and Toronto Hydro. Event details are available at http://www.scotiabanknuitblanche.ca.

“The popularity and international interest for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche increases each year,” said Mike Williams, General Manager, Economic Development and Culture. “The support of our sponsors is essential for the event’s ongoing success and progression. Their commitment to the arts and enthusiasm for this all night celebration of contemporary art represents public and private sector partnerships at their finest.”
