ILLUMINATE SF 2020
November 26, 2020 - January 23, 2021
ILLUMINATE SF – More than a dozen permanent and temporary eco-friendly light art installations transform San Francisco nights into a citywide gallery of light. Tours and events based on these public art installations invite visitors to “embrace the power of light.” Thanksgiving – Jan 23, 2020
You may not be familiar with light art, but San Francisco aims to change that. It’s an original art form that exploits light, colors, and shadows. San Francisco is proudly represented by the now permanent, 1.8 miles of LED lights that span the Bay Bridge between San Francisco and Treasure Island. The Bay Lights aside, San Francisco also has one of the most extensive collections of permanent light art in the country. Known for innovation and technology, along with a staunch commitment to public art, light art in a tech town’s center, makes a lot of sense.
Experience Illuminate SF Festival of Light, Thanksgiving through Jan. 23, 2021
Winter nights are long, giving residents and visitors a perfect opportunity to explore this dramatic blend of technology and art. If you haven’t seen light art before, this is the perfect opportunity. You’ll be fascinated by art that is poetry in motion.
San Francisco celebrates this unique art form with an annual festival that runs from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day and shines a light on dozens of dramatic, eco-friendly light art installations as soon as the sun goes down. Since most installations are free for everyone to see, you can bring the entire family along.
