Nuit Blanche Toronto

Awesome Nuit Blanche exhibits are still on at City Hall

Nuit Blanche might seem like a distant memory already, particularly for those who've spent the last 48 hours recovering from the all-night affair, but if you've seen all the stunning photos from this year's event and are sad that you you chose to stay home, there's still hope!

This year's most popular exhibitions are still on display. Director X's Death of the Sun, Floria Sigismondi's mesmerizing Pneuma, and Philip Beesley's Ocean will remain at City Hall until October 10. There hasn't been much attention given to this extended programming, which is down from year's past, but it's actually an amazing chance to see the work without the massive crowds of the big night.

Yesterday evening, for instance, a crowd of about 100 people took in the theatrics around Nathan Phillips Square. It was a cinch to get perfect viewing angles and to zone out and take it all in. Meanwhile, it was easy to sneak a peek at Beesley's underwater transformation of the City Hall Rotunda (it's open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

The scene will be markedly different tonight with Jays fans expected all over the Square, but the installations light up at 7 p.m., so there's extra incentive to get there well before the game (which starts at 8 p.m.). And if crowds aren't you're thing, you can always head down to NPS when the Jays aren't playing.
