ILLUMINATING 
COMMUNITIES

A series of light sculptures will collaboratively illuminate the sky. The Kilroy Stars will be located at three highly-visible properties across our portfolio. On this second annual celebration, Kilroy is excited to reveal the Kilroy Stars at two new unique communities, Austin and Long Beach.

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.

Check out your city's star! Use the maps below to find the best viewing spots. Remember to be safe, stay on the sidewalks, do not enter private property, and continue to practice social distancing.

Kilroy partnered with Zoetic Digital, digital art program creators out of San Francisco, and a team of renowned artists and fabricators to bring these 3D sculptures. The ornate Stars are designed and built by Engineered Artworks, an Oakland-based design and fabrication studio that specializes in extraordinary custom art installations, large-scale immersive experiences, and imaginative feats of engineering using metal, light & fire. They have been commissioned by The Smithsonian, and brought spectacles to Burning Man and other public venues around the country.

BEHIND THE

SCENES

 

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.
