Thank you to everyone for making this year’s Nuit Blanche North our biggest yet! 7,000 people packed the streets of Huntsville to experience the work of 94 different artists. An extra special thank you goes out to our incredible Funders, Sponsors and Supporters including Celebrate Ontario, the Ontario Arts Council, Explorer’s Edge, Pipefusion, Town of Huntsville, Lake of Bays Brewing Company, Algonquin Outfitters, Pub on the Docks, Huntsville/Lake of Bays Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Huntsville BIA, the Agro Centre, Trinity United Church, The Great Vine, Huntsville Art Society, and of course the many generous volunteers who gave their time and opened their homes to visiting artists. Thank You!
This year we expanded Nuit Blanche North with a number of different activities throughout the weekend. We were thrilled to have Governor General, Juno winner and recent order of Canada recipient, composer R Murray Schafer join us to present his 12 part trombone piece “Music for Wilderness Lake” at both dawn and dusk, as well as a celebration of his 80th birthday featuring an original performance, art installation created by MABELLEarts, and Q&A featuring Mr. Shafer and long time collaborator Thom Sokoloski.
