Event: Dîner en Blanc NYC

Dates:Monday, September 17th

 

It may not be an art show, but this unique and exclusive event is definitely a unique visual experience. The New York white dinner, inspired by the French dinner party, happens one night every summer and is considered to be one of the most elegant and massive events in the city. The event usually attracts thousands of people to a secret outdoors location that is revealed at the very last minute, only for people who registered in advance. It’s important to note that everything in the event, from tables to chairs, is BYO (Bring Your Own) and everything, of course, needs to be in white. The delicious picnic basket, however, is curated by Renowned chef and Michelin Star recipient Marc Forgione.

Photoville takes place in Brooklyn Bridge Plaza, located in DUMBO, right beneath the span of the bridge. The shipping containers in the venue will be transformed into art galleries for a week, showcasing over 600 visual artists. During the evenings, the festival offers nighttime projection programs, workshops, panel discussions and talks. This family-friendly festival also, of course, hosts a range of food vendors and a beergarden.
