Night Festival of Art in CBD
Nite Art is a one-night-only festival featuring over 75 artists showcasing their work across 3 precincts within the Melbourne CBD.

The evening of Thursday 23rd July 2015 will be your opportunity to see Melbourne as you've never seen it before. Melburnians and visitors alike will be able to explore the city through a series of interconnected galleries, museums and architectural spaces.

Venues within 3 precincts of the CBD will be involved - University of Melbourne, the Arts Precinct at Federation Square, and City Central Precinct. Several galleries in Flinders Lane will also be involved.

Artists of all mediums will be represented, including photography, painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, printmaking, design and technology, so there is truly something for all tastes. Many of the artists will be in attendance, so it is a great opportunity to discuss their collections, and to meet like-minded art lovers too.

In addition to the exhibits, there will also be interactive sessions including presentations by various artists, 5x5x5 Sound Composition session at Hamer Hall, poetry performances and more. Several of these need advance bookings, so check out the program here to make sure you don't miss out.

One of the unique experiences available will be seeing painter Josh Robbins create an original artwork before your eyes at Flinders Lane Gallery. Visitors will be encouraged to create their own drawings within the studio space.
