In 2013, Ta-coumba T. Aiken, a St. Paul artist, was approached by the St. Paul Foundation to create the world’s largest Lite Brite at the Union Depot. This project was a testament to Aiken’s love for art and his dedication towards creating something unique.

Aiken used over 500 volunteers to help glue together the thousands of Lite Brite pieces that make up Forever St. Paul, a massive piece of art measuring 24 feet wide and 8 feet high. The finished piece has become an iconic landmark in St. Paul and set a Guinness World Record for the largest Lite Brite display in history.

As a child, Aiken had a love-hate relationship with Lite Brite as he once burned his finger trying to change a bulb. However, this experience did not discourage him from pursuing his artistic dreams and he turned it into an incredible art project that showcases both his skill and creativity.

The creation of Forever St. Paul is not only an impressive feat but also serves as a reminder of how art can bring people together and inspire them to create something truly special.
