The Port of San Diego is seeking artist-led design teams to create environmentally-friendly lighting proposals for the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge. The intent of this project is to create a distinctive signature artwork: an iconic, artistic statement that will enliven the public environment. The artistic design should create a sense of place, draw people to the region, and withstand the test of time. The Port of San Diego is committed to providing sustainable development whenever feasible. Therefore, the artistic lighting must utilize the latest environmentally-friendly technology. Although there is no standard definition of “green” lighting, artist teams will be required to demonstrate how their proposal meets the goals of sustainability while achieving the objective of lighting the bridge artistically. A balance between artistic statement and energy resource conservation is envisioned.

The proposed design should strive to maximize energy efficiency and minimize net-energy use while demonstrating
unfettered artistic expression. To meet the efficiency objective of the proposed art statement, the project could include, but should not be limited to, the use of any or all of the following:

- High-efficiency lighting equipment
- Energy-conscious design
- On- or off-site renewable power generation
- Innovative energy use

This is an international project open to all professional artist-led design teams. Applicants must have demonstrated proficiency in large-scale collaborative lighting projects.

Project Goals
- Create a distinctive signature artwork for the region
- Draw people to the region
- Be considered an asset to the Port of San Diego and member cities
