Brighter Connected art installations

in 8 windows across Greater Boston

BRIGHTER CONNECTED will bring the light of Hanukkah to 8 Boston-area neighborhoods through works of art created in partnership between a local artist and a community/ies.

It is a mitzvah (good deed) on Hanukkah to “publicize the miracle” of the oil that lasted 8 days. By bringing communities together to create art in celebration of the holiday and by showcasing their collaborative work in the windows of Boston neighborhoods, we hope to highlight not only the past miracle of Hanukkah, but also the present-day miracle of the strength, resiliency, and vibrancy of our Boston community. 

These pieces, in their creation and in their installation, will be designed for social distancing.
