Light: Installations by Bruce Munro at Longwood Gardens marks this UK light artist's first garden installation in the United States. Known for his imaginative illuminated sculptures, Munro’s works will showcase never-before-seen views of Longwood at night. The beautiful exhibition will feature seven large-scale outdoor installations, two additional installations within Longwood’s grand four-acre Conservatory and a collection of illuminated sculptures in the Music Room. 

After the sun sets, visitors will have the opportunity to venture through the Forest of Light made up of 20,000 glowing lights resembling a field of blooming flowers or meander through Longwood’s Meadow where 69 symmetric Water Towers create a glowing maze of light that changes hues to music. 

Munro designed the exhibition to highlight and enhance the natural beauty of Longwood Gardens while being sensitive to the environment.
