Starting this Friday, October 9th, the Chestnut Hill Conservancy will host the fourth annual Night of Lights. This year it will take the form of an extended public art installation transforming Chestnut Hill into a nightly interactive exhibition of local history and architecture.
From 7pm to 10pm every night from October 9-25, historical images from the Conservancy’s archives will be projected through eight storefront windows while neighboring historic buildings are illuminated with colored lights.
Several stores will be open late, featuring window displays with historic images showcasing their own buildings’ histories. Printed “Pastports” will be available at participating retailers and projection locations including Windfall Gallery.
Our building was built in 1895 as a residence. It was converted into apartments and storefronts in 1927, back to apartments around 1942, and then again into storefronts in 1984 when Windfall Gallery was born.
