Bruce Munro at Brookgreen: Southern Light

Bruce Munro at Brookgreen:  Southern Light

April 8, 2020 - September 12, 2020
Wednesdays - Saturdays

Join us at Brookgreen in 2020 for an immersive experience in art and light.

Internationally known artist, Bruce Munro, will bring his spectacular large-scale light sculptures to the gardens, allowing visitors to literally see the gardens in a new light.

The exhibit will feature seven works of art in light and mixed media, each designed specifically for the natural garden rooms where they will be installed. The illuminated installations will consist of tens of thousands of components.

Ticket information will be available soon.

                                                                                        Bruce MunroAfter his first visit to Brookgreen, Munro said, “My site visit reinforced the notion of a garden being made up from a series of interconnected outside rooms. It also left me with an impression that the ‘garden rooms,’ populated by figurative sculptures, were surrounded by an untamed landscape. It’s a magical place with an edge of the unknown!”

Brookgreen is excited to welcome Bruce Munro and his art to our gardens. This will be the only chance to experience Bruce's incomparable installations in the Eastern United States in 2020.  Bookmark this webpage to check back for additional information.
