Nuit Blanche Houston Cocktail Party / October 25th, 2018

Sofia Adrogué and Judy Nyquist invite you Thursday, October 25th, 2018, 6 pm to 8 pm, for an evening to raise awareness and support Nuit Blanche Houston.


Please join our co-chairs Sofia Adrogue and Judy Nyquist

for an evening to raise awareness and funds for Houston’s first Nuit Blanche, a night of art and entertainment!


Imagine Houston animated at night, transformed by the magic of art with unique installations dotted around Downtown.

Festival Nuit Blanche is a highly acclaimed international contemporary art event inaugurated in Paris in 2002, and staged every year since. It has had iterations in major cities throughout the world such as Toronto, Montreal and Singapore. With site-specific performances, projections, and installations of light and sound in unexpected public spaces, the festival transforms the city into an artistic playground.


Project Director, Laura Matesco, a former associate of Paris' Nuit Blanche, along with volunteer program advisor Judy Nyquist, are working with institutional collaborators—Fresh Arts, Houston First, the City of Houston, and other local partners—to make Nuit Blanche Houston happen in Spring 2019. This unique celebration, free to the public, will engage both highly regarded international artists and local luminaries as well as school children.

Come help spread the news about this celebration of contemporary art

inviting everyone to explore the streets of Houston!
