The East Side of Manhattan is about to get a glow-up. Internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro will unveil a new Field of Light installation at Freedom Plaza, between 38th to 41st Street east of First Avenue in Manhattan, on December 15th. The installation, which spans more than six acres, will feature “17,000 lowlight, fiber-optic stemmed spheres that will illuminate with a slow subtle change of hue.” Guests are invited to fully immerse themselves in the lights as they walk a winding path along the East River waterfront. Made possible by The Soloviev Foundation, this installation is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. The show is currently sold out through February, but March tickets will be released on February 1st, here.
