The group restoring the Nantucket Lightship says it doubts it will let Harbor Arts string a "sail" between the ship's towers that could be set to broadcast illuminated displays of art across the harbor, and really wishes the whole idea had never been made public to begin with.
In e-mail today, the U.S. Lightship Museum says:
Although Harbor Arts has approached us for this project, we have not made any commitment to them. Presently, the USLM is reviewing their proposal. The harbor arts video proposal has merit and we applaud their efforts but it may not be possible to include Nantucket/LV-112 for reasons of historic integrity. We have limitations as a National Historic Landmark and a strict covenant that we are required to uphold. However, we would like to consider and work with Harbor Arts on projects that are compatible with LV-112.
