OPPORTUNITIES FOR TICKETS!
Fly By Night is currently fully booked. But there's still a chance to see the show! Become a member of Creative Time today and receive two tickets to a Fly By Night performance (we'll do our best to accommodate your preferred date). For more information about Creative Time membership, contact email@example.com. And thanks to the generous support of artnet, we have extended Fly By Night through June 19. Tickets for the final weekend of performances are also fully booked, but you can click here to join the waitlist for those performances.
Otherwise, due to popular demand, a limited number of additional tickets will be released to the public in waves. These tickets will operate on a first-come first-served basis to those who have registered for the waitlist. For your chance to attend this unforgettable performance, simply select your preferred performance date, click "Add to Waitlist," and enter your contact information as prompted. Please repeat this process for each member of your party.
Another option is to go rogue! We encourage you to consider an alternative viewing experience. You can watch the illuminated flights from across the river with stunning views of the Brooklyn skyline at the East River Park Ampitheater. Or, visit Rooftop Reds – our neighbors at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and the first commercially viable urban rooftop vineyard in the world – which has a gorgeous view of the project. Rooftop Reds’ capacity is limited; first come first served.
Creative Time and the Brooklyn Navy Yard are proud to present Fly By Night, artist Duke Riley's public artwork of unprecedented scale and beauty. At dusk, a massive flock of pigeons will elegantly twirl, swoop, and glide over the East River skyline. The birds will be outfitted with tiny LEDs, illuminating the sky in a transcendent union of public art and nature.
