de Truth by Illuminate is a blend of poems and poetic expressions running along the 450-foot-long façade of the de Young Museum. Created by the non-profit Illuminate, the light installation will change nightly and feature a variety of poets and people. Some nights will have visual light play without words. On Dec. 3, de Truth will honor the four San Francisco Poet Laureates who died during the COVID era: Diane di Prima, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Jack Hirshman, and Janice Mirikitani

Best Viewing: Adjacent to the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park. The installation is best viewed from the steps of the California Academy of Sciences.
