A community-engaged lighting design project in the works with the Methuen Arts Council, encouraging local artists to create art with light on the canvas of moving water.

The Methuen Arts Council contacted Lam Partners based on our work with Beyond Walls Lynn, asking Lam to assist in developing a design to illuminate Methuen’s waterfall on the Spicket River. The project is made possible by a $25,000 grant from the Essex Country Community Foundation. The Eagle-Tribune featured the project in its March 2021 article, “Methuen’s Spicket River: Just like Niagra“.
