BRIGHTER CONNECTED will bring the light of Hanukkah to 8 Boston-area neighborhoods through works of art in windows.
This is the next phase of the Brighter Together and Brighter Beyond installations created for the JArts Hanukkah: The Festival of Lights celebration at the MFA by artist Tova Speter.
These pieces are designed for socially distanced viewing.

About the MFA/JArts Hanukkah: The Festival of Lights and the “Brighter” installation series
The annual Hanukkah celebration at the MFA brings music, art-making, dance, storytelling, and the lighting of a larger than life Hanukkiah to thousands of attendees. Started in 2018 by artist Tova Speter, the “Brighter” installation series has engaged area middle school students from 8 schools to create a blacklight interactive installation for festival goers.
Brighter Connected is inspired by 8 Nights, 8 Windows, the 2015 public art project that led the way to the creation of JArts, bringing the miracle and light of Hanukkah to Boston through interactive light themed pieces in windows throughout Boston neighborhoods.
