2nd Annual IlluminArts Walk: Lighted Art Installation Tour
Thursday, December 4, 2014 | 6 pm
Meet at Jack Kerouac Alley, Columbus near Broadway, SF
Free, but an RSVP is required.
Language of the Birds
After gathering in Jack Kerouac alley, the group will visit Language of the Birds, where artists Brian Goggin and Dorka Keehn will share their experiences as the installation creators.
The Bay Lights
Moving through alleyways and stairways, the group will scale Telegraph Hill to admire The Bay Lights, the world’s largest light art installation, and learn first hand all the behind-the-scene stories of its creation from Illuminate the Arts leadership.
After descending the scenic Filbert Steps, the group will gather in the public plaza at the Exploratorium to experience Metamorphosis, a glowing, mist-generating comet sculpture created in commemoration of the Rosetta Mission to rendez-vous a spacecraft with a comet.
Classic Cable Car Sightseeing will be waiting to deliver the group, the San Francisco way, to Pier 14 to take in the brilliant interactive light installation Soma, first seen at Burning Man 2009, to hear the story of its creation by artist Margaret Long of the Flaming Lotus Girls. Please note we’re not sure if there’s a cost for the cable car or not, so bring cash just in case.
Intrepid participants have the option to return to the Exploratorium via Classic Cable Car to attend After Dark:Glow (tickets not included) which is open until 10 pm.
