Artist Krzysztof Wodiczko created a work of public art for the Robert W. Healy Public Safety Facility that illuminates the façade of the building with a dynamic lighting system.  Using LED lamps and making new use of the twelve existing light fixtures on the front of the building, the artist selected different colors of light and display patterns in order to symbolize and express the continuing responsiveness of the Cambridge Police Department and the Emergency Communications Center to the life of Cambridge citizens.
