Art lovers will have all night long to check out one of the exhibits of this year's upcoming Scotiabank's Nuit Blanche Toronto event - right here at the CBC Toronto Broadcast Centre. Fans of the annual night-time art festival - which is celebrated around the world - can enjoy Artist Andrew Kearney's SKYLUM installation inside CBC's Barbara Frum Atrium starting on Saturday (Sept. 29) at 7pm and running for 12 straight hours until Sunday (Sept. 30) morning at 7am - all for free.
The exhibit includes a large inflatable display that will hang down from the top of the atrium, simulating the image of a thundercloud complete with lights. One of the coolest things about this piece - it activates sounds when people move around on the ground floor of the atrium.
Beginning in Nantes, France in 1984, the cultural arts festival has spread to over 120 cities (including Toronto and Montreal) and usually features museums, art installations and event performances such as dance, music and even film.
You can check out SKYLUM in the Barbara Frum Atrium at CBC's Toronto Broadcast Centre at 250 Front Street West or any of the other events around the city this Saturday at 7pm - Sunday 7am.
After (or before) checking out Skylum, you can head to one of our favourite events of last year that's happening again. At midnight in Trinity Bellwoods Park - at the dog bowl - 100 lanterns will be released into the Toronto sky. It's a beautiful sight, and you can check out more details on the Facebook event page.
