Fall is here and Brookgreen Gardens is unveiling a new event to enjoy as the evenings turn cooler. Every Friday and Saturday night in October from 7:00-9:30pm, guests are invited to Autumn Nights in the Field of Light, an immersive light display created by Bruce Munro. A Lowcountry supper of Frogmore stew, roasted oysters, and chicken bog will be served and guests can enjoy the magical installation featuring over 12,000 stems of color and light. Originally installed for Bruce Munro at Brookgreen: Southern Light, Field of Light will be the only installation on view for this event.
Tickets are $45 for members and $50 for the general public. A cash bar will be available for wine and beer purchases. VIP tickets are also available for $200, which include buffet and wine for two, reserved seating in the open-air Leonard Pavilion, preferred parking, and a copy of Bruce Munro’s book “Light.”
Brookgreen’s exhibit is the only opportunity to see Munro’s work in the eastern United States in 2020. To purchase tickets, click here.
