AUSTIN, Texas – The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and C3 Presents are collaborating to bring the “Field of Light” exhibit by acclaimed artist Bruce Munro to Austin starting Sept. 9.
Illuminating 16 acres, Field of Light is described as a “stunning display of 28,000 stem spheres that are subtly illuminated by solar-powered fiber optics.” Organizers say it shows an intersection of art, technology, and nature with the intent of “inspiring a sense of shared existence.”
“Austin is a unique destination that embodies many of the core values of this facility. My hope is that the Field of Light facility inspires visitors to contemplate a friendlier, more connected world,” Munro said. “The Wildflower Center is the perfect place for this exhibit simply because it unites people, art and nature.”
