Hope and solidarity shines in Paso Robles

Sensorio in Paso Robles joined nationwide efforts to bring recognition and encouragement by lighting up the sky.

The luminous exhibit Sensorio, the Paso Robles Field of Light by Bruce Munro, darkened its lights until June 1, 2020, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. But on Apr. 9, the lights shone bright as it joined with cities and monuments across these United States in a tribute to the healthcare workers battling on the front line of the outbreak.

Called #LightBlue, the nationwide collective salute honors the essential workers by lighting landmarks, sports arenas, entertainment venues, and artwork with blue lights as well as to show solidarity and hope during this time of isolation and uncertainty.

Inspired by a similar UK campaign, blue lighting events have spread across the globe. Over 100 places participated in the US campaign.
