The Bay Bridge is an iconic sculpture in San Francisco, USA, which officially opened to traffic on 12 November, 1936. To celebrate its upcoming 75th anniversary, artist Leo Villareal wishes to transform the 1.5-mile bridge into a large light installation.

The Bay Lights project hopes to decorate the bridge with 25,000 individually programmable white LED lights. Once switched on, the lights appear to be shimmering and moving, creating the illusion of large glistening curtains.

Leo Villareal and his team still need to raise a further $3 million and finalize the permitting process in order to proceed with the project. Watch the video below to see what The Bay Lights project could look like.
