Lighthouse is putting on a public art project in honor of its 25th anniversary.

Between 25 and 50 75–pound light bulbs will be placed throughout Lincoln. The environmentally friendly icons are made of fiberglass and resin.
They will be decorated by Nebraska artists.

"It's just a reminder how important advocacy is for our kids," project director Liz Shea-McCoy said. "And they know they can find it at Lighthouse."

"I'm a strong believer in the arts," Mayor Chris Beutler said. "I think there's a very positive aspect to public art, and how it relates to human beings and towns and public cities."

There will be a public meeting for artists on July 14 at 7 p.m. at Old City Hall located at 920 O Street for those interested in crafting one of them. For more information, click here.

The light bulbs will make their debut next May.
