“The Illuminated Palace,” A New After-Dark Projected Light Installation at the California Historical Society

A new and exciting one-of-a-kind art exhibit begins today: The Illuminated Palace. The Illuminated Palace is an after-dark projected light installation by projected light artist Kevin Cain. Cain brings his new work to the windows of the California Historical Society on Mission Street in San Francisco. He combines lensless camera techniques from the dawn of photography with contemporary digital views to capture architect Bernard Maybeck’s vision of the Palace of Fine Arts as a fleeting ruin.

The Illuminated Palace runs from Thursday, July 2 to Sunday, August 16, 2015 and is the latest installation in Engineers of Illumination by Optic Flare, a projected light series honoring the stunning achievements of the 1915 World’s Fair. Engineers of Illumination is the work of six light-based artists bringing to life the innovations of the 1915 World’s Fair with modern technology.
