And shine it will for all visitors during The Star of the South Dental Meeting. Especially if a visit to Brown Promenade, after dusk, is on the itinerary.

Field of Light, a dazzling art installation by internationally-acclaimed Bruce Munro is on display along the Brown Promenade through  Feb. 22,  illuminated from 3 to 11 p.m. daily.

Munro originally conceived the idea in 1992 during a trip through the red desert of central Australia, when he sketched a landscape of illuminated stems that would wait like dormant seeds in a dry desert, to bloom at night. It has since been specifically re-imagined for sites across the globe, since 2004. The Discovery Green Field of Light comprises 4,500 radiant, frosted glass spheres atop slender stems connected by illuminated fiber optic. The spheres and stems wait quietly until dusk and then bloom with gentle rhythms of colored light as darkness falls over the park.


George R. Brown Convention Center will host the Star of the South Dental Meeting today through Jan. 24.

It is sure to inspire, along with the innovations in dentistry on display through Saturday at The Star of the South, when The Greater Houston Dental Society’s annual meeting brings dental professionals to the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Founded in 1904, The Greater Houston Dental Society (GHDS) is the fourth largest component society in the United States, with a current membership of over 1,600.

Don’t miss the Friday Night Star Party, which will begin as the Exhibit Hall closes and will be held in the back of the Exhibit Hall on Friday at 6 pm.
