Nightview: ACA Memorial Lit Up
11/27/2012 (Updated 11:44:57 PM)They were all lit up Tuesday night--doves-- of peace, and remembrance--
They are the American Civic Association's memorial to the victims of the mass shooting there --the lighting in keeping with the spirit of the season--of peace, and kindness--
The 13 glass birds were put in place earlier in the day.
They represent the 13 victims of the 2009 shooting at the American Civic Association.
They are internally illuminated, and surround a central column lit with glass prisms.
Artist Milon Townsend says the display represents the ascending souls of the victims.
"I like the idea of creating something which will be seen and shared by the community, I think this will become a touch point. Each person creates the meaning of the work, it's not my position as the maker, that's up to them to write their own story, they see it," said Townsend
the memorial site is on the southeast corner of Front and Clinton streets, near the Clinton Street bridge.
Its a few blocks north of the ACA building.
