The Bay Lights

San Francisco’s Bay Lights

The Bay Lights is a brand new artistic installation on the San Francisco Bay Bridge, which is very close to and visible from Hyatt Regency San Francisco. This permanent light event is great fun to enjoy from nearby restaurants, during a romantic evening at the end of a pier, or from inside our Embarcadero hotel’s Regency Club Lounge.

The Bay Lights – An Overview

Known for his permanent collections at prestigious places like the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Leo Villareal designed The Bay Lights installation, which ILLUMINATE helped bring into existence in order to “alter the arc of human history through the creation of transformational works of public art.” As of January 2016, the exhibit shines permanently on the San Francisco Bay Bridge and excites spectators nightly.
