Night of Lights is an innovative public art exhibit that will transform Chestnut Hill's commercial corridor into an interactive exhibit of local history and architecture, immersing visitors in the ongoing story of the area. On October 4th, historical images and films from the Chestnut Hill Conservancy's Archives will be projected through storefront windows and onto exterior walls. Neighboring buildings along Germantown Avenue will be illuminated with colored lights, while long-time business owners will become interpreters for the evening, sharing stories and engaging the community about their own history. A one of a kind approach to neighborhood history and community storytelling, Night of Lights aims to foster public appreciation and protection of the history and treasures that define the character of the community.
