Join us in completing another captivating art installation. We are the Lightbird Project, dedicated to enlivening public and private spaces with mesmerizing Lightbird installations that connect us to nature and raise awareness about the impact of warming oceans on seabirds in Northern California.

Imagine the awe-inspiring sight of a sun-powered Lightbird with a 40-foot wingspan flying on a 200-foot wall in our Emeryville neighborhood. Thanks to a City of Emeryville Visual Arts grant, we have progressed toward our mission. However, we need your support to complete the project. The grant provided seed money for our first exterior permanent installation, but we still require an additional $15,000 to cover the costs of fabricating and installing a permanent large-scale project.

Your contribution will help create a stunning visual experience that invites our urban community to look up from their cell phones and smile. Your donation, no matter the size, will make a difference.
