Last evening took a run over along Howard to the Embacadero to see the ‘opening’ of artist Leo Villareal’s privately funded public artwork. I had forgotten the excitement that an unveiling could have plus the thrill of a public artwork bringing together a community until last night, and what a technologically savvy and aesthetic artwork it is! Thank you, Leo Villareal.
Here are a few images from the rainy evening. The artist spoke from a speaker and mentioned that over the next two years, the same patterns would never be seen twice.
Here is an informative quote from the NY Times “… Tuesday night when the artist Leo Villareal will switch on what is being billed as the world’s largest L.E.D. light sculpture. The public art installation, “The Bay Lights,” will illuminate the bridge’s 1.8-mile western span with 25,000 undulating white lights.” (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/05/us/light-sculpture-is-set-for-bay-bridge.html?_r=0)
