The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University has become a member of Buffalo LIT (Landmark Illumination Team). The museum portico has been refitted with new SGM color-changing LED lights to create a captivating luminescent wash across the marble façade of the building.
Buffalo LIT is an illumination initiative between architecturally significant structures in the Buffalo-Niagara region, who agree to coordinate their exterior lighting displays to mark major events, holidays, commemorations, recognitions, or other occasions. The Castellani Art Museum is one of only two participants in Niagara County—the other being Niagara Falls.
“Our participation in Buffalo LIT offers the Castellani Art Museum another opportunity for collaboration and social engagement with our community, utilizing light and color, through this Western New York partnership,” said Michael Beam, interim director of the Castellani Art Museum.
When not illuminated in partnership with Buffalo LIT, the Castellani Art Museum will feature Niagara University’s signature purple.
