    Shining a permanent light on San Francisco

    Once meant to be a temporary installation, the Bay Lights is now a permanent part of the city's skyline.


    In 2011, the non-profit arts organization, ILLUMINATE, collaborated with the California Department of Transportation, and artist Leo Villareal to create a stunning display of light on the San Francisco -Oakland Bay Bridge. Unveiled in 2013 and originally intended as a short-term installation, The Bay Lights became a global attraction. Before going live, it was dubbed by Hemispheres magazine as “the number one thing to see in the world during 2013.”

    The new system incorporates Philips ActiveSite, a cloud-based connected lighting platform that allows for efficient management with benefits including remote diagnostics, reporting, and more.


    The new Bay Lights was unveiled on January 30, 2016 and at that time was gifted to the people of California by ILLUMINATE.
