Art has always had a significant role in the life of Houston residents. With over 60 galleries featuring pieces from local, national, and international artists, the city has attracted art-lovers for decades.
For those looking for an evening outside downtown, consider visiting Bruce Munro’s Field of Light, a dazzling display along Brown Promenade.
The art installation will only be on display in Houston through Feb. 8, and is illuminated from 3-11 p.m. each day. For the best experience, however, visit the exhibit after dusk.
The event is free to everyone, making this an affordable—yet enjoyable—night out downtown. Perfect for a date night or a fun family evening, Field of Lights is something you should not miss.
The artist, Bruce Monro, is best noted for this internationally acclaimed, site-specific installation. The display is not only pleasing to the eye: Bruno hopes to evoke an emotional response through the practice of mediation (do you mean connection?) of memory and of moments of shared human connection.
Munro’s Field of Lights is the first display selected by Discovery Green Conservancy’s newly-established fine art committee. The park, along with the artist, is committed to using recycled materials in unexpected ways.
A grant from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance, along with The Brown Foundation, Inc. and the Weingarten Art Group, helped fund the project.
From all of us at The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian, we hope you take advantage of this limited-time Houston attraction. Although we will be sad to see the exhibit go come Feb. 8, we are thrilled to see what exhibit the Discovery Green Conservancy selects next.
When you’re visiting Field of Lights, be sure to also enjoy the park’s three iconic art pieces that are public year-round. These include Margo Sawyer’s Synchronicity of Color, Jim Dine’s The House (Heart), and Jean Dubeffet’s Monument Au Fantome.
We hope you have a great time in downtown Houston!
