Check out what’s coming to San Francisco! On March 5, 2013, the Bay Bridge will be lit up by 25,000 white, individually-programmed LED lights for a distance of 1.8 miles. The light show will take place from dusk to midnight for two years. I’m so curious to see how this turns out and what the reaction of people who live within eye shot of the bridge will be. I’ll definitely check in with my friends who live in San Fran.

The artist is Leo Villareal and he has plenty of experience creating interesting lighting displays. However, this scale is surely a new size canvas for him and for anyone, for that matter. I wonder if they’ll incorporate music into the grand opening? It almost begs for it when you watch the pattern of lights. For more info, visit http://thebaylights.org
