LIGHT: Installations by Bruce Munro at Longwood Gardens
June 9 - September 29, 2012
This is Bruce’s first one-man show. It spans 23 acres and consists of eight large outdoor installations, two installations within the 4-acre Grand Conservatory, and a collection of illuminated sculptures in the Music Room.
The unmatched beauty of Longwood Gardens has inspired Bruce in so many ways.
Often Bruce’s large-scale installations reflect moments of distant memory, when light has been the catalyst of change, or altered his mood profoundly. Avoiding wastefulness, he often attempts the creation of magical beauty with humble, or discarded materials.
Munro’s aim is to pass on a positive energy; nothing more intellectual than that. Making visitors feel the warm glow of a smile is his great aim and satisfaction.
Light is his passion, his subject, and his material. “I always carry a sketchbook and everything that touches my life goes into it. Making sculptures and lights from these jottings is what I do, and my only ambition is to do more!”
