The Bay Lights is the world’s largest LED light sculpture, 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high. Inspired by the Bay Bridge’s 75th Anniversary, artist Leo Villareal creates a never repeating, dazzling display of 25,0000 LED white lights. This iconic light sculpture shines from dusk until dawn on the San Francisco Bay Bridge west span from March 5, 2013 through March 2015. In collaboration with the State of California, a long-term proposal will bring the installation back in early 2016 and will remain forever brilliant.

Each side of the 18-story Pyramid measures 345 feet (105 m). It was designed by architect Don Gibbs (a CSULB graduate) and built by the Nielsen Construction Company of San Diego. The facility holds 7,000 spectators in a seating system that can be hydraulically raised to expose 39,000 square feet of beechwood flooring for 3 full-court, 6 half-court basketball areas and 5 volleyball areas.
