The Field of Light, an art installation featuring 28,000 neon-bright glowing orbs, is now open at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

The installation by artist Bruce Munro is meant to celebrate the landscape + highlight the intersection of art, technology, and nature.

Using solar power and fiber optics (thin, flexible strands of glass that transmit light), the glowing orbs slowly fade in and out of range of colors. Walking paths weave through the 16-acre installation, offering visitors several up-close views of the magical scene.

🌅 Pro tip: We were lucky enough to check out the Field of Light in person last week. We highly suggest arriving at sunset, in order to watch the lights slowly illuminate against an orange sky.
