The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge celebrates the 75th anniversary of it’s opening in 2012. Bridge officials are planning to light things up with a celebration that’s sure to be brilliant for anyone with a view of the western span of the bridge.
The Bay Bridge will be decorated with 25,000 LED lights, all individually programmed to perform a spectacular 500-foot-tall animated light show on either side of the western span. This dazzling show of lights will use only solar power, and will remain installed and on display until well into 2013.
Step aside, stepsister complex. The Bay Bridge becomes the more chic and dynamic of San Francisco’s two major bridges in 2012.
The installation is called the Bay Lights Project, designed by groundbreaking large scale visual artist Leo Villareal. The giant animated public art piece — complete with with dancing lights, animated light bursts, and coordinated waves of light — is previewed in an artist’s conceptual rendering video.
Mr. Villareal is something of a cult favorite in the Bay Area arts scene. His 2010 exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Modern Art dazzled visitors with large-scale, interactive light installations. Mr. Villareal’s giant LED light sculptures have also been a staple of the popular Burning Man festival held annually in Nevada.
With the lighting of the Bay Lights Project and the upcoming America’s Cup Finals, a view of the San Francisco Bay will be more sought-after than ever in 2012 and 2013.
