Spurred on by Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone’s call for more art and light in the city, the Somerville Arts Council presents “nightLIGHTS,” a series of light installations throughout the city. This project is inspired by the long tradition of Somerville families that decorate and illuminate their homes for the holidays. In addition to three new large-scale murals that the Arts Council commissioned in the summer of 2018, this project further fulfills our mission of infusing public art into everyday life. The work will be completed by December 19th and will remain up through January.
