The holidays at nighttime mean lights. Lots of them. But in San Francisco, it can also mean a time to take in the latest and the greatest pieces of nondenominational glowing art. When the nights get longer and darker, it’s a perfect canvas for electrons in action.
On Wednesday, the arts group Illuminate SF will run a free bus tour to take in all of the sights and lights across the city, some of them recent additions and some longtime pieces that often go overlooked despite their wattage.
For those who can’t make it—or who prefer to run their own tours—here’s a peek at some of the illuminated gems the city has to offer.
