UMB sign lit in blue

The celebration was to recognize the front-line workers for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the state of Maryland’s Healthcare Heroes Appreciation Week.

To give thanks to the state’s front-line workers for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of Maryland lit buildings such as Government House, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, and M&T Bank Stadium blue on Friday, Feb. 11, as part of Healthcare Heroes Appreciation Week.

And the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) was able to join in on the celebration because of its new sign atop the School of Medicine’s Bressler Research Building. The sign features LED lighting with RGBW (red, green, blue, and white) technology, which allows for the UMB letters to be illuminated in different colors.

So, for the first time since the sign was installed, UMB’s Office of Facilities and Operations, in coordination with the Office of Communications and Public Affairs, changed the color of the 10-foot-tall UMB letters to blue on Feb. 11.

The new sign replaced the old University of Maryland sign that stood for about 20 years on the south side of the building.
