A magical otherworldly escape is wowing crowds just a few hours down the coast, and it’s certainly worth the trip! Sensorio is now hosting Field of Light by Bruce Munro, a captivating light art installation that recalls some of California’s iconic superblooms. It’s created from an expansive glowing carpet of 100,000 solar-powered light-up spheres which gently illuminate the landscape in subtle blooms of morphing color.
In April 2021, Sensorio commissioned a second work by Munro titled Light Towers, which consists of 69 glowing towers made from over 17,000 wine bottles in an ode to the surrounding vineyards. The towers shift between a series of soft colors to an ethereal musical score.
Just recently in May 2023, Sensorio announced two additional exhibits by Munro in the small valley next to Light Towers. They are Gone Fishing, a playful interpretation of an introspective pastime; and and Fireflies, a whimsical work made of 10,000 flickering lights. The two new exhibits add another half-acre to the entire Sensorio experience.
This one-of-a-kind immersive experience boasts live entertainment from local musicians, plus food and beverages. Be sure to check out the Terrace Experience, which has private tables and fire pits, a terrace overlooking Field of Light, and an Airstream bar.
Visitors must reserve tickets in advance in order to experience this immersive exhibit.
Sensorio has been extended multiple times due to overwhelming public demand, and tickets are currently on sale through May 2024. Learn more about this gorgeous event and Bruce Munro’s work by visiting the Sensorio website.
