Point Park University, along with Duquesne Light, tonight will flip the switch on a new illumination of Lawrence Hall. Duquesne Light provided the university with a $100,000 grant as part of its Power of Light program to illuminate the historic downtown edifice. Point Park University spokesperson Mary Ellen Solomon says the new lights accentuate the art deco style building and demonstrate an effort towards economic development in the downtown area. The new luminaries will first be turned on at a ceremony at 6 p.m. tonight.
