For NYC’s contribution to the Nuit Blanche project — which started as an art all-nighter in Paris 10 years ago and now takes places in cities across the world — our little Greenpoint will be transformed into a free nighttime marathon of public art set against the Manhattan skyline. From 6pm Saturday through 1am Sunday, “Bring to Light” will feature a menagerie of site-specific installations by emerging and established artists. The 50+ participants will “re-imagine public space and civic life” through light, sound, performance, and projection, giving you a glimpse at the city like you haven’t seen it before. Bonus: the festival’s arranged to keep the East River Ferry running every 15 minutes ‘till around midnight for a much-appreciated alternative to the G. Have you taken that thing yet? Do it! Waterways are the future.
