The Field of Light at Sensorio has drawn thousands of visitors to a glowing Paso Robles landscape since it opened on May 22.

The installation by artist Bruce Munro covers 15 acres off Highway 46 East and is made up of nearly 60,000 fiber optic stemmed lights that slowly change colors as visitors walk through the field.

Munro brought his lightscape to Paso Robles at the request of Ken Hunter, co-owner of Hunter Ranch Golf Course, as a preview for Sensorio, an interactive garden and art attraction he’s been planning for years.

More than 2,000 visitors bought tickets to see the Field of Light during the installation’s opening weekend, according to a spokeswoman for the attraction.
