Nuit Blanche 2013 at The Knit Cafe

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.
