IALD New York: Field of Light

Come join the IALD New York chapter for a visit to Bruce Munro’s light art installation, Field of Light at Freedom Plaza.

The opening keynote speaker at our recent IALD Enlighten Americas 2023 conference, Bruce Munro is a British artist best known for his large immersive light-based installations. 

Spanning more than six-acres on Manhattan's East Side from 38th to 41st Street east of First Avenue, Field of Light at Freedom Plaza will feature an array of 17,000 lowlight, fiber-optic stemmed spheres that will illuminate with a slow subtle change of hue. Guests will be fully immersed in the installation as they are invited to walk the winding path through the ethereal painted landscape framed by the city's iconic skyline and the East River waterfront.

Sold out to the public through February, we welcome our NYC lighting design community to join us for the experience before the end of this year!

“Light has always played a major part in my life and work, and for me, is a natural medium to use. With the light installation at Freedom Plaza in Manhattan, I intend to stimulate the imagination and senses of any viewer by creating a breathtaking immersive experience that utilizes every hue of light to create a visual Eden.”

We'll gather the chapter and guests at 5:00 PM on Saturday, 23 December at Freedom Plaza (between East 38th Street and East 41st Street, and First Avenue and the FDR Drive). The entrance to the field is on 41st Street.

RSVP today, and we look forward to seeing you there!
