Celebrate the 75th anniversary of San Francisco's iconic Bay Bridge with the Bay Lights art light sculpture beginning today, March 5, 2013. This monumental art installation, designed by world-renowned artist Leo Villareal, will feature more than 25,000 white LED lights that will cover the West Span of the Bay Bridge in a spectacular display that is 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high. Believed to be the world's largest LED light sculpture, the Bay Lights energy efficient, individually programmable lights will cover the Bay Bridge's vertical cables to create a display that offers unique patterns of light across the entire western span. The Bay Lights will be on display from dusk until 2am daily and will viewable from the city of San Francisco and points north. €œFront row€ views will be available at the Hotel Griffon, with bay view rooms that give guests a priceless view of the bridge, the San Francisco Bay and the Embarcadero. The Inn at Union Square and the King George Hotel also provide great home bases in San Francisco to explore the city and see the light installation. If you are staying at the Creekside Inn, a quick train ride up to San Francisco is a fun and convenient way to come see the lights.
The Bay Lights will run from March 2013 through March 2015.
