Art All Night: Nuit Blanche DC

In 2011, the Wonder Bread Factory was one of the most popular Art All Night venues, with over 7,000 visitors.


“Art All Night is a unique opportunity to explore the creativity of DC artists of all types, in traditional and nontraditional spaces, ranging from small galleries and theaters to the historic Wonder Bread Factory and award-wining Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library,” says Alexander M. Padro, Shaw Main Streets executive director.
“And it all takes place in the middle of a neighborhood that’s booming with new development, including over 20 new bars and restaurants, a number of which will be open during the big event.”


Major sponsors of Art All Night DC 2013 include Douglas Development Corporation, the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development, DC Main Streets, and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

-On September 28, 2013, Shaw Main Streets presents Art All Night, the second full-scale overnight arts festival in Washington, DC based on Paris' Nuit Blanche. The magic lasts from 7:00 PM that night until 3:00 AM on Sunday, September 29.
