2010

In 2010, a passionate team of community advocates, curators, writers, neighbors, designers, and cultural
entrepreneurs came together to create the first “nuit blanche” event in New York. Inspired by this
collaborative energy, over 75 artists from a variety of backgrounds and mediums re-imagined Greenpoint on
Brooklyn’s industrial waterfront.  In its first year, Bring to Light was an under-the-radar phenomenon that
drew 10,000 visitors solely through word-of-mouth and established a seminal cultural event for the city.
The first Bring to Light was organized by DoTank:Brooklyn (Michael Zick Doherty, Ken Farmer, Aurash
Khawarzad, Tom Peyton, Ted Ullrich) produced by Furnace Media (Katrina Albright, Ryan Beaucher,
Ethan Vogt) and co-produced by Pepin Gelardi, Jacquie Jordan, Annie De Mayo, Anna Muessig,
and Stephen Zacks.
