Field of Light is a stunning display of 28,000 stemmed spheres that are subtly lit by solar-powered fiber optics, showcasing the intersection of art and technology. The new exhibit will illuminate 16 acres in the Arboretum at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at The University of Texas at Austin and opens on September 9th. With tickets on sale now, consider this a must-do on your fall list of things to do.
Tickets start at $41 for adults and will offer guests of all ages the opportunity to experience this incredible installation. In addition to being able to experience the Central Texas landscape in a whole new way, guests are encouraged to make a night of it by enjoying food and drinks from local vendors. Entry times are in 15-minute increments, and guests may enjoy this self-guided experience at their own pace.
The installation, created by the highly acclaimed British artist Bruce Munro, unites with the outdoors, celebrating the natural topography of the landscape of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center—to whom a portion of the proceeds will benefit.
“The Wildflower Center is the ideal place for this exhibition simply because it mirrors the true meaning of my work,” Munro says. “People coming together to connect in the beauty of nature. My hope is that the Field Of Light installation will inspire visitors to contemplate a kinder and more connected world.”
