On Tuesday night, the Bay Bridge's western span shone with 25,000 white lights, in what has been billed as the world's largest LED light sculpture. We'll talk about the ambitious installation, designed by artist Leo Villareal. What do you think of the Bay Lights? How does it stack up against other large-scale public art projects?

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Amy Critchett, executive director of Illuminate the Arts, a non-profit that presents public art, including The Bay Lights
