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 www.patronicity.com/lightscapes 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.
