Brewer Fountain Lighting
Doreen Le May Madden is working with the Friends of the Public Garden on a lighting design for more effective and efficient lighting of the Brewer Fountain on Boston Common. The custom-designed lighting was created to use the existing electrical feed to not disrupt the newly renovated fountain basin. Brewer Fountain is a bronze casting of a sculpture created for the 1855 World’s Fair in Paris that was donated to Boston by Beacon Hill merchant Gardner Brewer. It was installed near Beacon Street in 1868 and moved to its current location near Tremont and Park Streets later in 1917. For the first time, the fountain will be illuminated year round.
