On June 1, Illuminate will again light the Pink Triangle.
One year after creating a sensation in San Francisco with a full acre of pink light above the city, Illuminate will again bring (night) life to Patrick Carney’s epic canvas triangle on Twin Peaks. And this year, the Triangle will remain illuminated for the entire month of June.
Grand Lighting: June 1, 2021 around 8pm
For the past 24 years Carney and his team of nearly 300 volunteers had installed a massive canvas triangle atop Twin Peaks to kick-off the city’s Pride celebration, but Covid-19 restrictions prevented volunteers from gathering in 2020. It appeared that the Triangle – in its 25th year – would not happen.
But Illuminate stepped in, assembled a team of light artists and engineers, and safely installed a grid of lights onto the hillside. On June 26, with a locked down city below, Illuminate lit the beloved symbol of hope and inclusion.
Immediately after San Francisco Mayor London Breed flipped the switch on the 2,700 pink LEDs, it was celebrated locally and around the world as a brilliant and still poignant evolution of the Pink Triangle.
