INDIANAPOLIS — The lights at the Indianapolis Power & Light headquarters on Monument Circle have celebrated NCAA championships, thanked former Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and observed other special occasions.

For now, those lights will fade to black.

The lights and software will be updated for the launch of the Shining a Light project on Monument Circle.

The windows of the 10-story IPL building have been lit in colors to create lettering and symbols for various events and observations around Indianapolis. The statement did not indicate how long the signature light display has been operating.

A statement from Tanya Sovinski, director of community relations for IPL, said the updated lights will be turned on for the Shining a Light project.

The nonprofit Downtown Indy Inc. and the Indiana War Memorials Commission shared details Sept. 10 about Shining a Light, a $7.6 million project funded by the Lilly Endowment.

The project launching Nov. 9 will present a nightly 5-minute program in red, white and blue to honor veterans. LED lights are being placed on top of surrounding buildings and around the Circle.
