Nuit Blanche: Paris’ Arty Party

Tonight marks the 12th edition of Paris’ annual nightlong art party, Nuit Blanche. For anyone still in the city post-fashion week, it’s a great (free) cultural event to check out. The entire city comes alive with various art installations scattered everywhere from historical monuments to the riverbanks of the Seine. One of the best parts about it is that you’ll see all types of people out and about, experiencing art in many different forms. To get an idea of what to expect, here are some highlights from last year’s event. Check out tonight’s program here or download the app here.
