Please donate and be a part of bringing light to downtown Pittsfield!

Berkshire Lightscapes has received a Commonwealth Places matching grant from Mass Development to create modern LED lighting on Park Square, City Hall, and Dunham Mall in downtown Pittsfield. If we can raise $50,000 by May 16 we will receive a matching $50,000 from MassDevelopment! If we meet our goal, we will have a total funding of $100,000 to begin the project by August 2018.

The Project:

  • Park Square will have memorial style LED spotlights on the historic Civil War monument and tasteful LED up-lights facing the trees.
  • Dunham Mall is a pedestrian thoroughfare connecting North Street’s commercial district with City Hall. A “corridor of artistic LED light” will illuminate the event/entertainment venue in front of City Hall.
  • City Hall will have tasteful LED lighting to the building façade and the front railings. Entertainment/events will be located in front of City Hall, and onto contiguous street areas.

Project Donations can be made online at or you can also pay by check to Downtown Pittsfield Cultural Association. On the check memo Berkshire Lightscapes. Send the check to DPI/DPCA, 33 Dunham Mall #101, Pittsfield, MA 01201.
