ELAB presents CITY of NIGHT
ART. HISTORY. CULTURE. SUSTAINABILITY.
Donations accepted at the gate.
The event is from 4 pm - 1 am.
City of Night is a multi-faceted event held at Silo City in Buffalo, NY, designed to promote art, culture, sustainability and history by igniting a connection between people and the places around them. Through the event, ELAB (Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo) provides an opportunity to experience a significant place visitors might not otherwise explore in a spectacularly unique way. Our goal is to provide a lasting experience that will effect each visitor’s interaction with their community and the important places around them forever.
CITY of NIGHT is a one-night multi-disciplinary arts event with themes of Art, History, Culture and Sustainability. It features installations and projections in/outside the grain elevators, live performance in the form of sound art, theater, and dance, an art fair, a themed art show, food trucks, beer and wine tent, bike valet, and myriad ways to interact creatively with Buffalo's internationally-renowned, historic grain elevators. The event was created by Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo (ELAB), and this is our third year.
CITY of NIGHT signifies the darkness that Buffalo and other similar places have experienced in the late 20th century, and where we're going, not only here but regionally, nationally, and internationally. Buffalo is evolving rapidly, awakening from its slumber, but some shadows remain. We seek to investigate the CITY of NIGHT and its symbolic or literal meanings. We are creative place-makers, rejuvenating the forgotten and threatened with the power of art. What will we do with the dawn?
