Bruce Munro’s Light Art Show Announced at Longwood Gardens

CGIs by Stephen Weeks

Longwood Gardens, one of the world’s great display gardens, has commissioned UK light artist Bruce Munro to present a debut, garden-wide exhibition, LIGHT!, in the summer of 2012. This is Munro’s first garden installation in the US and will showcase never-before-seen views of Longwood at night.

LIGHT! will feature seven large-scale outdoor installations, two installations within Longwood’s grand 4-acre Conservatory, and a small collection of illuminated sculptures in Longwood’s historic Music Room.
