For Sensorio, British artist Bruce Munro has created a 15-acre Field of Light hosting an array of over 58,800 stemmed spheres lit by fiber-optics, offering visitors an unparalleled immersive experience in a breathtaking otherworld. Bruce Munro: Field of Light at Sensorio is larger in size than any other Munro exhibition internationally, and is Munro’s first US exhibit entirely powered by solar. The installation has been welcomed by media, calling it “the future of public wellness” (Forbes) and a “pilgrimage-worthy art escape” that is “meant to complement, never compete or detract, from the beauty of the landscape” (Travel + Leisure). Field of Light at Sensorio has also been described as “mesmerizing” (Los Angeles Times), a “dreamlike glowing landscape” (SLO Tribune), and a “well-considered mix of technology, art installations, and community elements” (Forbes). Other amenities include food and alcoholic beverages available for purchase, and a special VIP terrace option offering viewing while dining. A rotating array of live music guests will also be performing on the Event Lawn every night Sensorio is open.

London-born Munro is best known for large-scale light-based artworks inspired largely by his continuous study of natural light and his curiosity for shared human experiences. With a fine arts degree, early career training in the lighting design industry and an inventive urge for reuse, his art captures his responses to literature, music, science, and the world around him. His work has been commissioned by and displayed in special exhibitions in galleries, parks, grand estates, cathedrals, botanical gardens, and museums across the globe.

The Central California destination launches with the interactive light installation by Munro, as other exhibits and buildings are put into place for an expected opening in 2021. 

Future developments at Sensorio will include a hotel and conference center.
