San Francisco Bay Bridge Celebrates 75 Years With LED Light Up
To commemorate 75 years of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, an $8 million public art installation will light up the iconic structure for the next two years. Conceived by creative agency head, Ben Davis, and designed by New York-based artist Leo Villareal, Bay Lights will see the San Fran bridge illuminated by 25,000 white LED lights. The lights are programmable, so that different animations and abstract patterns can be created and will be visible from afar. They will cover a massive 1.5 miles along the length of the bridge, and 500 feet in height.
The installation is scheduled for light up on March 5th 2013, until some time in 2015 – possibly 75 weeks after the launch?
