Grace Cathedral and SF nonprofit Illuminate will soon present the highly-anticipated Grace Light installation, a 100-foot-tall shifting beam of light created by artist George Zisiadis. The free, site-specific installation is accompanied by an original musical score by Gabriel Gold.
Visitors will be 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. The display will be up starting Monday, January 3, recurring on Monday evenings through mid-April. You don’t want to miss one of San Francisco’s most impressive and spiritual art installations!
Grace Cathedral is currently in the middle of their celebrated holiday programming. During the rest of the holiday season, you can check out their famed record-breaking origami tree, as well as countless choir and musical performances.
Grace Light is possible thanks to the tireless work of Illuminate, an SF nonprofit is responsible for 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, Mondays starting January 3, 2022. You’ll find Grace Cathedral at 1100 California Street in San Francisco’s Nob Hill neighborhood.
