No, it's not your imagination. The Art District on Santa Fe Drive does look different. That's because about 200 new high-efficiency LED lights have been installed in all the street lamps along Santa Fe, between Sixth and Tenth avenues. Oh, and they're blue. Not golden, and -- for goodness sakes! -- not red, but beautiful, luminous blue. The color of excitement? That's what Michelle Jacobson of Doyenne Designs, who is a district member, is banking on. Jacobson, with help from the maintenance district and Colorado-based VeraLED, spearheaded the movement to bring a little color into the district as part of overall plans to eventually turn the street into a showplace that people can enjoy anytime - not just on First Fridays.
Good start! See the district in a whole new light tomorrow during its monthlyThird Friday Preview Night; a celebration for the new blue hues will take place at 8 p.m. on the northeast corner of Ninth Avenue and Santa Fe Drive.
