The stunning Light at Sensorio exhibit in the rolling hills of Paso Robles reopens today with a new installation from creator Bruce Munro.

The exhibit had been closed since December due to the pandemic.

The new work by the British artist adds Light Towers to the 15-acre outdoor walk-through exhibit. The addition gives a nod to Paso Robles’ wine country origins with 69 towers made up of 17,000 wine bottles, illuminated with glowing optic fibers. The colors change to a custom musical score.

For more information go to sensoriopaso.com. The exhibit runs through Sept. 30.
