Art installation to light up Mount Pleasant for the holiday season
Mount Pleasant will get a new beacon for the festive season thanks to a public art installation.
The Mount Pleasant Business Improvement Area, Liveable Laneways Society, and the Lee Building will flip on the light switch of a large-scale representation of a tree, created by the Liveable Laneways Society, architect and artist Jasminka Miletic-Prelovac, and her colleague Robert Sutherland.
The tree, mounted on the western exterior side of the historic Lee Building, is made from white chloroplast attached to chicken wire and decorated with lights donated by BL Innovative Lighting.
A community Light Up ceremony will be held, complete with Main Street artists, organizations, and volunteers in attendance, on Tuesday (December 10) at 4:30 p.m. at the Lee Building (175 East Broadway).
