Can I buy the sculpture/bag/pendant somewhere? I don't want to wait.
The aluminum sculptures, bags and pendants are made in batches. They are limited edition pieces and cannot be guaranteed to be in stock. Like all great art, they take time and can't be bought in any store! All gifts can take 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.
Can I buy some lights and decide who to give them to later?
Yes! You can return to Your Lights and see which lights you have already gifted, and which you have yet to give. You can give them at your leisure.
How do I do this? I want to get a photo up!
First choose your light using the bridge interface, and add it to your cart. Click "Checkout" and decide which level you want to donate at. Once you've chosen you'll be taken to Amazon payments and you'll pay for your item. Once you return, your light will appear on the "Your Lights" page. There you can upload a photo, name your light, etc.
Can I remain anonymous?
The Bay Lights functions on Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 9 and greater. While viewable on iOS devices, the experience is not ideal and is recommended that you use a laptop/desktop for the best experience.
Why can't I have an actual light?
Once the LEDs come down off the bridge, Illuminate the Arts will do it's best to see that the materials used are reused in the spirit of The Bay Lights. The Bay Lights are a piece of public art for everyone to share, and we hope that it will live on for decades in various forms.
