Springfield Under The Stars was a collaboration between MassDevelopment, The Springfield Central Cultural District and City Mosaic. The free community movie screenings took place on Wednesdays in September in Stearns Square, an underutilized park in the center of the new Innovation/ Dining District.
The mission of the event is to positively promote Downtown Springfield by attracting young professionals and families to stay in the city after work hours. Two public art installations were completed as part of this event : the interactive "When I Grow Up" Visioning Wall and two painted utility boxes by artists Mischa Epstein and Carole Singh.
This program was funded in part by a MassDevelopment Placemaking grant.
