Illuminating The Bay

The Bay Lights by Leo Villareal
  • Public art installations involving lights are always illuminating and celebratory. Whether it’s an interactive installation over English Bay as part of the Cultural Olympiad in Vancouver or a lit heart in the middle of Times Square, light has the power to change how we perceive space in a moving way.

    Artist Leo Villareal is taking the moving part pretty seriously with his proposed installation for San Francisco. The project, dubbed ‘The Bay Lights’, proposes to install 25,000 LED lights on the west span of the city’s Bay Bridge in time for its 75th anniversary.

    The project is going the crowd-funding route, so you, too, can donate to help this project become a reality!
