Sea Center to “Light it Blue” in Support of Healthcare & Essential Workers

On Thursday, May 14 at approximately 8:00 PM, the Sea Center on Stearns Wharf will light up in blue to show gratitude to healthcare and essential workers.

This highly visible, public act of support is in partnership with the #LightItBlue campaign which invites businesses, venues, and communities to turn blue in support of the frontline medical staff and essential workers who are confronting the COVID-19 pandemic in hospitals, grocery stores, and other essential businesses around the world.

The Sea Center will be the first building in Santa Barbara to be lit up in blue as part of this campaign.

SBMNH President & CEO Luke J. Swetland shared, “We are so honored to participate in this important moment of recognition and appreciation. The Sea Center floats magically above our beautiful, blue Channel. Bathing it in calming light is a wonderful way to show our community’s love and support for those who are taking care of the most fragile among us.”
