Experience San Francisco’s extraordinary light art scene.
ILLUMINATE SF shines a light on San Francisco’s ever-expanding light art scene and celebrates the city’s culture of creativity and innovation. The year-round initiative is presented by the San FranciscoTravel Association in collaboration with local civic and cultural partners, and showcases the city’s public light art installations, most of which are accessible by public transportation and free to view. However, three at SFO are post-security, and artworks in museum exhibitions are viewable with entrance fee during hours of operation.
WHEN IS ILLUMINATE SF?
Anytime! Most of the light art installations are permanent and part of the vast assortment of free public art in San Francisco.
* San Francisco’s Civic Art Collection encompasses more than 4,000 objects, including historic monuments, murals, paintings, sculptures, installations and other media.
