Light: Installations by Bruce Munro

Experience Longwood Gardens in a whole new Light through the evocative and imaginative art of Bruce Munro, British artist and light designer.

(Exhibit runs from June 9th until September 29th, Saturday evenings only.)

Never before seen in the United States, this debut exhibition illuminates the gardens with large-scale, site-specific light installations. Wander through a field of light reminiscent of flowers, discover a meadow of glowing towers changing hues, and delight in a shower of cascading raindrops fashioned from delicate lights as you are immersed in a new and truly unique garden experience. Both indoors and outdoors, by day and by night, Light! will change the way you see gardens.
