Grand Hyatt San Francisco has unveiled “Rainbow LOVE,” a site-specific sculpture by local artist Laura Kimpton. The sculpture is the highlight of a new public courtyard space bordering Grand Hyatt San Francisco. This is the eleventh piece of local art that has been commissioned for Grand Hyatt San Francisco. 
 
“Grand Hyatt San Francisco is thrilled to unveil ‘Rainbow LOVE’ as the newest piece in our collection of local art installations,” said Paul Devitt, area vice president, Grand Hyatt San Francisco. “We’re proud of our commitment to supporting the local arts community and for the opportunity to have such an iconic outdoor space in which we share this beautiful sculpture with our guests.”
 
The rainbow painted piece is nearly 21 feet long and six feet tall, with each letter comprised of Corten Steel, finished with hundreds of programmable LED lights, and weighing up to 450 pounds.  “Rainbow LOVE” reflects the philosophy of equality without exception and freedom to love whoever you love, capturing the free spirit of the 60s and celebrating San Francisco’s long history of supporting equal rights.
 
Laura Kimpton is a Bay Area-based conceptual artist who created the Monumental Word Series that began at the 2009 Burning Man Festival. The Monumental Word sculptures often evoke varied emotions and interpretations and elicit a wide range of reaction. LOVE is the third word in the series of seven that include: “DREAM,” “MOM,” “OINK,” “EGO,” “BELIEVE” and “BE.” Sculptures have been permanently installed in Dallas, TX, Reno, NV and Santa Rosa, CA and have made appearances at dozens of art and music festivals across the globe.
