I was waiting in line at Natural Foods Co-op and picked up the newest issue of SacTown Mag. There's an article in about the guy who is designing the lights for the crown of 621. The article is interesting. Essentially he said it will be comprised of 100,000 mini lights that will resemble the American and Sacramento Rivers. Apparently the lights will be moving as well. Maybe something like the water tower above the Alhambra Safeway?
That's about all I can remember from the article. Sounds kind of cool. Also sounds like it has the potential to be very very corny. I hope this guy pulls it off.
Yeah, especially from the back, it looks like a billboard on Times Square. I expect a marquee in neon adverstising a Broadway Musical.
Maybe it should have giant neon letters saying "I Love Sacramento", corny I know, but a positive statement.
Whatever it is I hope it is bright and visible and lite every night, all night.
