Field of Light"Light," an installation by artist Bruce Munro, opened at Cheekwood Art & Gardens in Nashville, Tennessee, in May 2013, and ran till November. The collection of light-based art pieces wound through the Cheekwood gardens, open late on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays during the summer. Cheekwood is always a peaceful, beautiful place, but seeing it lit up in such interesting and creative ways was a real treat. The piece seen here, with the Cheekwood manor in the background, is "Field of Lights," and it consisted of 20,000 lighted glass spheres. I thought I'd entered some kind of fairy land.
