Inspiration Board : Bruce Munro

Posted by

If you read the "On Our Radar" section of the front of Living (page 6 in the May issue), you may have seen the small blurb on artist Bruce Munro. He's one of my favorite installation artists. This month, the artist has a big show at the Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art in Nashville.



Bruce Munro is known for large (really large) scale works - he usually covers fields, portions of cities and large structures in varying types of lights. In a recent exhibition (above), he covered 23 acres of Longwood Gardens with different kinds of fiber-optics.


How amazing are these lights?


The Cheekwood Museum has a large lawn that will house over 20,000 stemmed light bulbs. The grounds measure nearly 60 acres, which will my covered with fiber-optic cables. Be sure to check it out if you are planning a trip there or live in the area.
