Wildflower center to host illuminating art installation

Monday, May 16, 2022 by Tai Moses

An extraordinary art installation will be lighting up 16 acres of the Arboretum at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center from September to December. Field of Light, created by British artist Bruce Munro, consists of “28,000 stemmed spheres that are subtly lit by solar-powered fiber optics,” resulting in “an immersive and emotional experience for guests,” according to the description. Said Munro, “Austin is such a unique destination that embodies many of the core values of this installation. My hope is that the Field of Light installation will inspire visitors to contemplate a kinder and more connected world.” Tickets go on sale in July, and a portion of the proceeds benefits the Wildflower Center.
