Rug up this Thursday, July 23, and prepare for a cold but enchanting evening as you explore Melbourne’s unique art-after-dark event. It’s a place where people, art and the city meet.

NiteArt, held for one night only is giving art-lovers, creatives and those willing enough to brace the cold access into the city’s galleries, artist run-spaces and museums to enjoy a diverse range of contemporary art, photography, design, installations and light displays.

There will be work from more than 75 artists tucked into 3 precincts of Melbourne including The University of Melbourne, Federation Square and City Central. There is an event map available online, so bring along a creative and curious friend and together navigate your way across the city as you curate your own night of art.

The artwork on display is extremely diverse but the aim of NiteArt as a not-for-profit organisation is to simply celebrate and reinforce Melbourne’s identity as a creative capital.

The evening begins at 6pm until late so there is plenty of time to get a glimpse of the cities best and more intriguing artwork. NiteArt also offers the chance to connect and engage with the artists and join in on a ‘walk and talk’. Along the way you can also take a pit stop at one of the many Melbourne bars or restaurants, including the selected ‘art bars,’ Hells Kitchen, Go-Go Bar and Bar Americano.
