Opening September 9th, 2022

Illuminating 16 acres in the Arboretum at the Wildflower Center, Field of Light is a stunning display of 28,000 stemmed spheres that are subtly lit by solar powered fiber-optics. The exhibition beautifully showcases the intersection of art, technology and nature. The installation unites with the outdoors, celebrating the natural topography of the landscape and creating an immersive and emotional experience for guests.

“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 . The Wildflower Center is the ideal venue for this exhibition simply because it brings people, art and nature together.“

– Bruce Munro
