The waters of the San Francisco Bay will be a bit darker beginning next month as the Bay Lights display on the Bay Bridge will be turned off—temporarily.
The organization that created a nightly light show illuminating the Bay Bridge said Thursday it needs to raise $4 million by the end of the year to make the public art project permanent.
The new $8 million light show on the Western Span of the Bay Bridge is having problems less than three months after the switch was flipped on.
You won’t want to miss the moment the San Francisco Bay is studded with even more twinkling lights. The Bay Lights is alight sculpture designed by internationally renowned artist Leo Villareal and will live for two years on the San Francisco Bay Bridge West Span, starting with the Grand Lighting on Tuesday, March 5th. We’ve picked the perfect spots to watch this iconic event.
By next March, the installation will create the appearance of dancing lights on the bridge’s Eastern Span, and organizers say it will likely bring nearly $100 million a year in tourist dollars to the region.
