On The Bay Lights project, Leo Villareal -- an artist known worldwide for his creations involving light -- is turning the San Francisco Bay bridge into a colourful LED sculpture, capable of displaying some creative animations on its sides.

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, its 25,000 white LED lights are individually programmed by artist Leo Villareal to create a never-repeating, dazzling display across the Bay Bridge West Span through 2015.
