Downtown SF and A3 Visual partnered to create Let's Glow SF, a free projection exhibit across four different buildings in downtown San Francisco at the beginning of December 2021. Using eighteen Panasonic PT-RQ35K projectors, five-minute projection-mapped shows were created featuring the work of eleven different local and international artists.
A self-guided tour around downtown San Francisco brought attendees to four buildings—One Bush Plaza, 345 Montgomery St., the Pacific Stock Exchange, and the Hyatt Regency—where the shows were displayed nightly between December 3 and 12. The artists involved were Louie Schwartzberg, Amandalynn, Duncan Rogoff, Ian Ross, Sean Capone, Sydney Bouhaniche, Cristina Paraiso-Chavez, Val Margolin, Erika L. Chan, Sophia Lee, and Ryan Uzilevsky.
Three award-winning international content development companies—SPECTRE Lab from Paris, Mindscape Studio from Bucharest, and Pixel n' Pepper also from Paris—digitized and animated some of the artist's work for the production.

The PT-RQ35K projector is a DLP laser projector with three WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution chips that are able to display 4K (3840x2400) images thanks to Panasonic's Quad Pixel Drive pixel-shifting technology. The dual laser light source is rated at 30,500 ISO21118 lumens, and the projector is the smallest and lightest in its class. For the Let's Glow SF event, the projectors were placed inside custom-built Proietta outdoor enclosures and operated by Modulo Pi media servers.
