Opa-Locka Light District

April 2021 - April 2024

Opa-locka Blvd

Ten city street lamps along Opa-Locka Boulevard have been transformed into poetry projection devices. The Opa-Locka Light District was created by O, Miami and the Opa-Locka Community Development Corporation (OLCDC) to display original short poems written by local residents.

The project, a winner of a Public Space Challenge grant from the Miami Foundation, uses specially-designed outdoor projectors created by Maker Faire Miami and Moonlighter Maker Lab. Besides broadcasting the voices of Opa-lockans, the lamps also add additional illumination to the streetscape with the goal of increasing pedestrian safety.
