Would you like to see some pics of our latest Nuit Blanche creation?
This year, we decided to present a squirrel homage. If you are not from here, you may not know that Torontonians have a rather special relationship with our squirrels. Perhaps it is because they are some of the only wild creatures we see on a regular basis, but we tend to be rather charmed by them. The famous white squirrel known to frequent Trinity Bellwoods Park is somewhat of a cherished mascot and a good luck charm. So for this year’s Nuit Blanche Installation we imagined a gallery exhibition devoted to squirrel portraiture.
We decided to show the different sides of our furry friends by taking on different artistic styles for each portrait.
