Art night 2012: a magical night to promote art and culture in Venice

23 June 2012

After its big success amongst the cultural events organised in Venice last year, Art Night returns on June 23rd, officially entering the calendar of the big events in Venice.

Art Night, the Art that releases the night, is an initiative promoted by CaFoscari University in close collaboration with the Venice Council and the Department of Trade and urban quality.

Once again Art Night will allow you to spend a night under the enchanting sky of Venice amongst out of hours openings, exhibitions, shows and cultural events of all types that will animate the whole of Venice to promote art and culture.

For the 2012 edition of Art Night work has already started: everything is nearly ready to create a new fixture amongst the cultural events of Venice with cultural institutions, museums and private galleries open until late and with free entrance. All the museums and the cultural institutions of Venice have already confirmed their adherence to Art Night 2012, which had last year already demonstrated great availability and enthusiasm towards this initiative. The students of Venice University will be the main protagonists of this night to discover the secret faces of art, many of which will be liberated during the Art Night. Additionally, many bookshops in Venice are also participating with out of hours openings during Art Night.

Like last years ceremony, this edition of Art night will also be officially opened in the courtyard of CaFoscari, where the dean of the University will symbolically open the gates of Art Night. A true protagonist of this night unmatched amongst the cultural events of Venice - is art in general, without the definition of a specific subject that would have limited the expression of the participating cultural agencies: all the participants of Art Night will, therefore, be able to freely introduce their own features. Art Night aims at involving more and more students from Venice with projects where they are the main characters. How can one miss this exceptional and unique event in Venice? Take advantage of the opportunity to spend a magical night in the name of art in which everyone will be involved: tourists, students and the citizens of Venice will benefit from these out of hours openings, exhibitions, screening, shows and cultural events of all types.
