Last week, I had a meeting over at Village Brewery where I met Caitlind Brown. She told me all about Nuit Blanche. The late night arts festival is already popular in Montreal and Toronto, but this is its first time in Calgary. It'll be at olympic Plaza on Saturday night from 7pm-3am.
Caitlind is responsible for the Cloud installation- a large scale interactive sculpture made from 5,000 reused light bulbs. The cloud has strings that hang from it to mimic rain and when you pull the strings, they light up bulbs to mimic lightning.
That's not the only cool thing. Check out this Carousel made from parking gates:
And the pop-up Candahar pub:

For more info on these and all the incredible installations, check out the Nuit Blanche website.
Things might be a bit quiet around here for the next week or so while we get settled into our house. Have a great week. See you soon!
