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
On June 27 San Francisco Mayor London Breed flipped the switch on Illuminate’s newest installation – a massive illuminated Pink Triangle on San Francisco’s Twin Peaks.
Working in conjunction with Patrick Carney, who has been laying down a canvas Pink Triangle on Pride weekend for the past 24 years, Illuminate stepped in to light the beloved symbol of hope and inclusion. Social distancing guidelines related to Covid-19 made the traditional canvas installation impossible.
Using 2,700 LED nodes to create a full acre of pink light, Illuminate’s iconic project was celebrated throughout San Francisco – and around the world. The lights will remain on through July 10.
