Cities Around the Country Send Messages of Love to Boston (Photos)

Artists and activists were quick to respond to the tragic events in Boston yesterday with messages of love and light. New York’s own rogue light artist The Illuminator set up a light display on the walls of one of the Brooklyn Academy of Music buildings, and similar messages were seen in the Midwest and from as far away as Hawaii. Take a look:
