Grace Cathedral and SF nonprofit Illuminate will soon bring back the popular Grace Light installation, a 100-foot-tall shifting beam of light created by artist George Zisiadis and accompanied by an original musical score by Gabriel Gold. The free, site-specific installation took a hiatus during the holidays, so we can’t wait to see it back on the calendar starting in January.
Visitors are fully immersed in a visual and auditory masterpiece, made even more impressive within one of San Francisco’s most beautiful cathedrals. Walk through and be bathed by the shimmering light beam, or lay down on the cathedral’s famous labyrinth for a more spiritual experience. The light and sound sequence lasts 15 minutes, but viewings last 45 minutes so you can stay for several rounds.
Free tickets are released at 12pm on the 15th of each month for the following month, so keep a close eye on Grace Cathedral’s event calendar to make sure you see this unbelievable installation. As of now the display is scheduled for January 9th and 30th, but more dates are expected. You don’t want to miss one of San Francisco’s most impressive and spiritual art installations!
Grace Light is possible thanks to the tireless work of Illuminate, the SF nonprofit behind popular large-scale light installations including the Bay Bridge lights; George Zisiadis, a Berkeley-based artist whose public artwork has been seen throughout San Francisco and the rest of the country; and Gabriel Gold, an SF-based composer whose compositions often frequent “sacred spaces.”
Make sure to see Grace Light at Grace Cathedral on select Mondays starting January 9, 2023. You’ll find Grace Cathedral at 1100 California Street in San Francisco’s Nob Hill neighborhood.
