ILLUMINATING THE WEST COAST

A series of light sculptures will collaboratively illuminate the sky and unite the cities of Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego throughout the months of December and January.

The Kilroy Stars span 20 feet in diameter and are outfitted with more than 30,000 individually programmable LED bulbs. The sparkling structures may be seen from miles away and will be configured to oscillate in various rhythms and patterns of dynamic light.

"In fostering the sublime power of art within our communities, The Kilroy Star’s inaugural debut is a unique reflection of its place and time. Now more than ever, we need avenues that inspire, and in a post-pandemic world, the role of public art will be even more important."

JOHN KILROY

CEO, CHAIRMAN

 

EXPERIENCE 

THE STARS

The Kilroy Stars will be located at four highly-visible properties across our West Coast Portfolio and installed in succession beginning in early December, remaining lit through Sunday January 31st. Although they are temporarily placed for the 2020/2021 Holiday Season, we aim to utilize The Kilroy Stars annually to celebrate the unique communities in which we operate.

KILROY'S COMMITMENT TO ART

Kilroy Realty has a love affair with great art. They believe in art as an alluring peek into the collective cultural consciousness—an endeavor to convey and to connect. Their properties are no different. Kilroys buildings are designed to reflect sophisticated environmental expressions, and the art in these spaces are carefully curated to complement that aesthetic. The result is inspirational, beautiful places to inspire imagination and spur creativity. In addition to its latest pop-up installation, The Kilroy Star, the company has a robust art program, with over 300 pieces throughout its West Coast real estate portfolio, with approximately 50 being public.
