Illuminate’s renovation of the Spreckles Temple of Music in Golden Gate Park is nearly complete.
Originally slated for completion in time to celebrate the Park’s 150th anniversary in April, the project was halted in March due to the Coronavirus. With restrictions now lifted, work has commenced again. The full renovation features a brilliant new multi-level stage, professional-grade theatrical lighting and a state-of-the-art new sound system.
This project, led by philanthropists Carla and David Crane, marks a new beginning for this long dormant and underutilized jewel for public performance. When it’s safe to return to the park and gather again, a sparkling new Spreckles will be front and center.
ILLUMINATE THE PINK TRIANGLE
For the past 24 years a team of volunteers has graced the Bay Area with an extraordinary – and important – symbol of resilience and hope. Each June they gathered on Twin Peaks to assemble the beloved Pink Triangle, which sat majestically above the massive SF Pride celebration below.
But this year the Triangle is in peril. Social distancing restrictions will prevent volunteers from gathering. The canvas triangle will not be laid out. And with all SF Pride events going virtual, this symbol is needed now more than ever.
