Plenty of parking. We just stumbled upon her (We went out to watch the sunset and the fog cancelled it out). She lights up and changes color. Nice addition to the San Francisco skyline.

There were reports earlier this year that the dancer had gone dark and would stay dark, but apparently she's glowing at night again.

Unfortunately she no longer lights up. The locals said that the salt in the air has rusted the lighting system and it would cost too much to fix her. I did make it over there at night though and I think sunset would have been a better time for pics had I known she wouldn't be illuminated.

We've learned to be wary of promises of night lighting, but this sounds like a definite No Lights permanent status...nice photo regardless!

Drive past the guard shack. The woman is before you turn tight for the Oasis Cafe. Tons of free parking nearby.

40-Ft. Tall Color-Changing Woman

"Bliss Dance" was built for the 2010 Burning Man Festival, held in the desert of northwestern Nevada. Now it stands in San Francisco Bay on Treasure Island, the place where artist Marco Cochrane and his team spent a year building it in a warehouse. The naked dancer is 40 feet tall and weighs almost four tons. Cochrane built Bliss Dance out of geodesic struts and covered its skin with stainless steel mesh.

The statue shimmers in the sun, and at night 1000 LEDs transforming the giant nude woman into a giant, glowing nude woman of slowly changing red, purple, green, etc. Visitors can manipulate the colors using a mobile app. Bliss Dance was originally slated to stand on Treasure Island only until mid-October 2011, but San Francisco's mayor liked it so much that he let it stay.
