Lights! Summer! Colour!

Downtown Dartmouth continues to shine bright this summer, even during the night! Take a look around the different colorful light projections around the community below.

If you’re inspired to capture photos of the light murals, please share them with us on social media with #downtowndartmouth!


The "Neon" Mural is a light installation designed by Philadelphia-based artist David Guinn and lighting designer Drew Billiau.  It was installed by Sasha Anistratova and Rick Zettlemoyer.

By day, the colours and shapes murals evoke the physical features and history of Dartmouth – the harbour, the skies, Sullivan's Pond,etc. By night, it transforms into a bright display of changinglight, evoking the optimism and revival of downtown Dartmouth. The LEDlighting only uses the equivalent energy required to light incandescent bulbs.   

The neon lights turn on at 4 p.m. every day.


A light installation unlike any other, the Wave Light Mural pays homage to Nova Scotia and Dartmouth's deep connection with the ocean.

This light mural will interact with with the weather forecast! Remotely connected to the internet, the light changes to a shades of orange and yellow white when it is hot out, and a darker blue when it's cooler.  Set to the ambient temperature of the outside.

A big thanks to the Clean Foundation for co-sponsoring this mural!


This one's sure to bring a twinkle to your eye!

In the alley between Revana's Pizza and Brightwood Beer will be a colorful 40-foot-long canopy! The canopy will cycle through different light designs and patterns throughout the night.

It's the perfect spot to take a picture as you enjoy your night out in downtown Dartmouth.

Please note: This mural is under repair until further notice.
