BRITE'n Up Dave Grohl Alley

BRITE'n Up Dave Grohl Alley will add an audio-visual display in the tunnel of the iconic Alley, just off Courthouse Square in Downtown Warren. Created in partnership with Chromaticity Technologies, a Howland-based small business specializing in special effects lighting and audio, the installation will enable people to play music and videos from a dedicated kiosk inside Modern Methods Brewing Co.

Modeled on similar projects as far away as Tokyo and as nearby as Pittsburgh, this lighting display will be a first for the Mahoning Valley.  With your help, we can light up Dave Grohl Alley to make it a safer space for the community and a public art installation that all can enjoy. 

BRITE is seeking to raise $10,000 necessary to fund the design, construction, and installation of the special light display, to supplement the nearly $10,000 in commitments from Warren community partners.

Q: Where will this installation be located?

A: The Installation will be located in the Dave Grohl Alley off of Park Ave.

Q: When will the installation be completed?

A: We expect the installation to be completed by the end of August, 2020.

Q: Why are you raising funds?

A: Due to the intensive nature of building the installation, as well as the materials required, we are fundraising to pay for the design and building of the light & sound display.

Q: Why are you building this?

A: The installation will provide better lighting in the alley and increase the safety of the area, while acting as a public art piece for the entire community to enjoy

Q: Who is leading the project?

A: BRITE Energy Innovators, a 501(c)3 organization, is handling all fundraising and contracting the work out to Chromaticity Technologies.
