Give the Gift of Lights!Author:Lindsey Shook
Think the San Francisco Bay Bridge is a stunner now? Just wait until March 5, 2013, when the bridge will shine brilliantly from dusk to 2:00 a.m. every night for two years.
The Bay Lights, designed by internationally renowned artist Leo Villareal, is the world’s largest light sculpture at 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high. Villareal is using 25,000 white individually programmed LED lights to create this masterpiece, and you can be a part of it by personalizing one or more of the lights in the digital display!
Give the gift of light to family or friends, or dedicate a light in memory of a special someone. For $50, you can choose where your twinkle will live for the duration of the two-year installation.
In addition to choosing your favored spot, $100 will get you a commemorative gift card with a laser-cut silhouette of the bridge.
Or, make a dazzling impact with $500 and you’ll receive all of the above as well as a limited edition aluminum sculpture of the Bay Lights installation (see main image, above) and a signed card by the designer himself, Leo Villareal.
Sign up now at gift.thebaylights.org to take your pick of sparkling lights. We can’t think of a cooler present than the opportunity to be featured on the Bay Bridge, it surely beats any other stocking stuffer you could think of. Shine on!
