Light installation coming to Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Bruce Munro needs to find his cowboy hat.

The British artist wants to look the part when he gets to Texas later this year. An art installation by Munro, called “Field of Light,” will open at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on Sept. 9.

The installation will be spread over 16 acres at the center’s Arboretum and will include 28,000 solar-powered, glass spheres that will light up in color as the sun goes down.

The installation will run through December. Tickets will go on sale in July. Prices have not been announced.

“I’ve just realized that one of my team nicked my (cowboy) hat and they never gave it back,” Munro told us on Monday, explaining that he collects hats from his travels. “I’m definitely going to need that. I’m just going to put that down as a note to self: Where’s my hat?”
