Designed by internationally acclaimed light artist Leo Villareal, The Bay Lights is the world’s largest LED light installation. Comprising 25,000 LED energy-efficient lights installed on vertical suspension cables on the western span of the Bay Bridge, The Bay Lights measures 1.8 miles long and more than 500 feet high. This monumental public art will remain on the bridge for two years through March 2015, and organizers anticipate that it will impact an audience of over 50 million people in the Bay Area alone. Commune is a proud corporate sponsor of the exhibit.
