Pete Buttigieg on Environment

 

 


As mayor, installed "River Lights" outdoor art for $700,000

From the Jefferson Boulevard Bridge, you can see the man-made rapids in the river and the River Lights, a permanent legacy of our 2015 anniversary celebrations. We raised over $700,000 to have an artist install a dynamic light feature to illuminate the cascades of the river in sweeping and shifting colors. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 153 volunteered the labor to set up the lights. Like all good public art, it has a charismatic quality that invites people to come up close to it, and to mix with others not like them. On summer evenings you will see clusters of people, clearly from different neighborhoods and lifestyles, walking in the park overlooking the cascades among lighted towers that responded to motion with patterns matching the lights on the water below. The colors of the light sculpture make up a universal language; very different faces light up the same way, responding to the hues, when it surprises them with a burst of gold or pink.
