Stunning light sculpture on San Fransisco’s Bay Bridge
San Francisco has such character and charm. It’s one of my favorite cities and now there is another reason to visit. Pioneer of computer driven imagery and use of LED, Leo Villareal created this dazzling display of the world’s largest LED sculpture. Inspired by the 75th anniversary of the Bay Bridge, this work of illuminative art has 25,000 white LED lights. That is eight times the scale of lighting they did for the 100th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. The Bay Lights grand lighting was Tuesday, it will be lit from dusk until 2:00 am every evening through 2015. It is estimated to bring over 97 million dollars to the local economy. It’s something amazing to see for those visiting the city by the bay and people living in the bay area are lucky to enjoy such an incredible view!
I’m so glad you posted this! We have family in the Bay area, so next time we’re up there I will HAVE to see this. Also, this post prompted a debate between myself and my hubby regarding the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge. I thought they were one in the same. I was wrong. Now he has to take me to see both! 🙂
Isn’t it beautiful? I have to get up there to see it!
