​“50 Places to Vis­it in 2020,” Light at Sen­so­rio fea­tures two instal­la­tions by inter­na­tion­al­ly acclaimed artist Bruce Munro. Field of Light is a 15-acre walk-through expe­ri­ence, Munro’s largest art­work to date, com­prised of more than 58,800 stemmed spheres lit by fiber optics, gen­tly illu­mi­nat­ing the land­scape in sub­tle blooms of mor­ph­ing col­or that describe the undu­lat­ing land­scape. Our lat­est instal­la­tion, Light Tow­ers cel­e­brates Paso Rob­les’ exten­sive wine coun­try envi­rons, fea­tur­ing 69 tow­ers com­posed of more than 17,000 wine bot­tles, illu­mi­nat­ed with glow­ing optic fibers whose col­ors morph to an inspir­ing musi­cal score. Pow­ered by solar, these stun­ning exhi­bi­ts cap­ti­vate vis­i­tors, invit­ing them to engage with the land­scape and envi­ron­ment through an ethe­re­al light based and sculp­tur­al expe­ri­ence. Smith­son­ian Mag­a­zine has called Munro’s art

ELEGANTLY ETHEREAL ILLUMINATION? A beautiful bulb, a zazzy tube of neon, or a vintage gaslamp all have a way of making anyone out for an evening stroll pause for a magical moment. For a light shining in the night can be something sublime, with color, shape, size, and other elements lending loveliness. But what if there was a pretty place sporting a multitude of lights dotting the hills near a winery, an outside artwork created by a world-renowned artist? Then you would likely be talking about "Sensorio," the highly visual sensation that has caught the fancy of people calling upon Paso Robles over the last several months. Artist Bruce Munro's large-scale, landscape-filling installation is indeed a nighttime treat, a spectacle that must be viewed after the sun has had its daily run. It's proven to be popular, which is no surprise as people seek out gentle whimsy, splendid sights, and uplifting moments, and a new extension has just been announced. (Source: www.nbclosangeles.com)

THE FINAL DAY... to behold this glowful treat, which includes several striking Light Towers as well as the 15-acre Field of Light, is now Jan. 2, 2022. Tickets run from $31.50 to $41, plus fees, for adults, and VIP options that are available Thursday through Sunday, should you want to view the vast artwork from the Private VIP Terrace with some vino and a few snacks. Oh yes: And the Light Towers are a new addition, if you visited the Field of Light early in its Golden State run. Fascinating fact? This is "... Munro's largest art­work to date, com­prised of more than 58,800 stemmed spheres lit by fiber optics, gen­tly illu­mi­nat­ing the land­scape in sub­tle blooms of mor­ph­ing col­or that describe the undu­lat­ing land­scape." In a world that could use more "wow," all told, that imagery brims with sheer wow-a-tude.

Among the prospective purchasers in mid-2006 was The MAK Museum for Applied Art in Vienna and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, represented by its new director, Michael Govan. He visited the studio at twilight, and from the driveway, saw the lights lit and concluded that the installation would be a perfect fit. Govan was followed by Andrew M. Gordon, a Goldman Sachs executive who would later become chairman of the museum's board. Gordon approved the purchase through his family foundation for an undisclosed price.
