Lights Over Bushwick is a public art installation that repurposes a mid-century modern steeple that rests on top of Iglesia de la Santa Cruz, an Episcopal church that also houses Bushwick Abbey and the community organizing center Mayday Space.

This project resurrects and reinvents the steeple as a beacon for community interaction in our post-modern, pluralistic world. Instead of bells, the installation uses LED lights to communicate with the community, changing color based on either user input via a mobile application or to mark special occasions such as seasonal or special events for the community.

Lights Over Bushwick is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
