Designed by artist Steve Szynal, City Lights uses colored effects to create uplifting and visually appealing light displays at prominent landmarks around Summit. The displays change color (green for Earth Day, blue for nurses, the Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad, Overlook Medical Center, and other local frontline heroes) to mark special occasions and to honor members of the Summit community. Look for the lights at City Hall and also at the roundabout across from the Summit train station.
A graduate of Penn State University, Steve Szynal is a licensed architect, artist, and lighting designer. As the owner of the Summit-based firm S + S Lighting Design, he has created lighting for projects ranging from hotels to corporate headquarters to historical landmark buildings in New Jersey, New York, and across the United States. Steve also draws upon his design experience to create original hand-cut, multi-dimensional, mixed media collages and oil painting, often of New York landmarks from Times Square to Wall Street. He also specializes in sports scenes. His unique artworks can be found in the collections of a number of celebrities, including Jerry Seinfeld and Michael Jordan, and also in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
