IPL’s iconic LED window light display on its 10-story headquarters in downtown Indianapolis shines brightly each night to promote meaningful events and organizations impacting lives in Central Indiana. The light display is controlled via a computer and uses energy-efficient, long-lasting bulbs to create a myriad of colors and movement.  

Taking advantage of Monument Circle's unique space, IPL collaborates with Downtown Indy, Inc. and the Indiana War Memorials Commission to present the Signature Salute, which plays nightly, 365 days a year. It starts with a 10-minute countdown and concludes with the five-minute presentation. Coordinated audio, video and light projections featuring the sounds and images of historic significance unfold across the surrounding building facades and statues on the Indiana Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Four beams of light soar skyward from each quadrant lighting Victory (atop the Monument), signaling Indianapolis as the Crossroads of America. Each of the three songs played show a unique look on the Soldiers and Sailors Monument.
