FORT GREENE - A new art display is being unveiled under the BQE at Park Avenue and Navy Street in Fort Greene.

The creative minds behind the art installation call the piece "Silent Lights," a play on the famous holiday song "Silent Night." Embedded in the installation are 2,500 tiny LED lights and microphones that change color in response to all the honking, screeching and traffic around them.

The whole project took two years to complete as part of an effort by designers Urban Matter, the city and its nonprofit partners to bring art to overlooked public spaces.

The display will be up through November 2014.
