Client: City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Foundation

Project Time Frame: 2008 – 2013

Event Dates: September 2008, 2010 & 2013, 7pm – 3am

Inspired by the Nuit Blanche (“White Night”) festival in Paris, the City of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division hired Community Arts Resources (CARS) to produce what has become the most highly attended art event in Los Angeles history and the first “Nuit Blanche” in the United States. In 2008, this groundbreaking, dusk-to dawn, 12-hour festival was attended by over 250,000 people, and in 2010, a 7pm – 3am iteration attracted 150,000. Both years, the festival used close to two-dozen site-specific installations by artists on the subject of light to activate almost a mile of Pacific coastline. In 2008 and 2010, CARS created and managed all production aspects, coordinated and facilitated artist technical needs, acted as intermediary between over 200 artists and city departments, oversaw infrastructure and supervised all staff and volunteers
