The Rocks, Vivid Sydney, 88 Bars

"88 Bars" is an artwork along George Street at The Rocks, which is part of the Vivid Sydney festival. It was created by Sinclair Park and consists of 88 neon tubes in a glass box. It is a reminder of the landmark neon Coca Cola sign on William Street, which was one of the largest neon signs in the world and featured 88 neon bars. It was installed in 1974 but the neon was replaced with energy efficient LEDs in 2016. Other artworks can be seen behind it in First Fleet Park.
