Got Light was honored to light up 'Party on the Rock,' a gala celebration for supporters of the @Large Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz exhibit, along with Brightfire Events.

Named "one of this year’s most important art exhibits internationally" by SFLuxe, it provides Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s sculpture, sound, and mixed-media installations in four previously restricted locations in the former prison.

Alcatraz and history go hand in hand. Once home to some of America's most notorious criminals, the federal penitentiary that operated here from 1934 to 1963 brought a dark mystique to the Rock. The presence of infamous inmates like Al "Scarface" Capone, and the "Birdman" Robert Stroud helped to establish the island's notoriety. To this day, Alcatraz is best known as one of the world's most legendary prisons.

Alcatraz Island is frequently the site of celebratory, large-scale special events such as corporate receptions, parties, dinners, and premiers. There's even dancing!

"Not only is it an environmentally friendly way to go, but wireless lighting can reduce costs up to as much as 50%, says Jon Retsky, the co-owner and lead designer behind San Francisco-based Got Light.  "While the cost of wireless equipment may be a bit pricey, the savings in cords, wires, gels, tape, and labor adds up, especially in venues that allow very little time to setup and remove." Going wireless can also lead to savings in power consumption fees from venues.

"If there isn't money for pattern washes or an elaborate lighting design, sometimes a handful of wireless uplights will transform a room and create high drama in the flick of a switch," Retsky says. "Uplighting is the first place to start when lighting a room --- and frankly you could stop there and still make a huge impact."

Huge thanks to Upstart Business Journal for featuring Got Light's origin and success story!

"Eleven years ago, Jon Retsky and Russell Holt started a two-man lighting-for-weddings operation out of Holt’s basement in San Francisco’s Russian Hill. Little did they know that in this dark little space they were building a bright future for themselves and the San Francisco event scene."
