Bruce Munro: LIGHT

Additional Information

Bruce Munro: LIGHT at Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens allows visitors to literally see the gardens in a new light.

The exhibition is Munro’s eighth large-scale garden exhibition in the U.S. The gardens and Conservatory will provide a stunning backdrop for eight sculptures, including Munro’s iconic “Field of Light” and “Water-Towers.” Two new works will also debut — “Sun,” a monumental globe, suspended inside the Conservatory, and “Don’s Flamingos,” a playful homage to the designer of the pink lawn flamingo, Don Featherstone.

Past exhibitions of Bruce Munro’s work have received both critical and popular acclaim. Visitors are expected to travel from Chicago, Madison, Milwaukee, Bloomington-Normal, the Quad Cities, and beyond, truly putting our young garden on the “who’s who” of public gardens.
