360 Beacon Hub

The 360 Beacon Hub was a twisting, glowing chromatic art display climbing 20 feet high across a 32-foot diameter in the middle of Occidental Square. During the holiday season of 2017, visitors to Occidental Square walked under and through this multi-colored installation that became a photo favorite. Lounge areas within the Hub invited visitors to meet and relax.

At night, the 360 Beacon Hub was activated by a choreographed series of unique light displays, one for each day of the week, with a goal of creating a vibrant nighttime atmosphere.

The installation was created by art and design firm StereoBot and on display in the park from December 2017 to January 2018.
