Field of Light as “mesmerizing” (Los Angeles Times), “art that you experience” (San Francisco Chronicle), a “dreamlike glow- ing landscape” (SLO Tribune), and a “well-considered mix of technology, art installations, and
community elements” (Forbes). It was singled out by The New York Times as #6 in its “52 Places to Go in 2020,” and again as one of “California’s Immersive Art Exhibits Worth Visiting” in 2022. Los Angeles Times also featured
Sensorio in its “101 Best Califor- nia Experiences” this year.
Sensorio enhances the view- ing experience with nightly live entertainment by local musi- cians, and offers food and bever- ages including wine, beer, and
Paso Robles
a selection of mixed cocktails, snacks, and meals. In addition, reduced ticket prices for children are available each Thursday when Sensorio hosts its weekly family night. A VIP Experience option is also available, includ- ing exclusive access to a terrace overlooking Field of Light with an Airstream bar, reserved seat- ing, fireside tables, and other amenities.
London-born Bruce 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, Munro creates
art that 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 around the globe.
