Munro will bring his captivating large-scale light sculptures to Brookgreen, allowing guests to “literally see the gardens in a new light.”

The exhibit will be comprised of seven works, each combining mixed media and light while incorporating the natural beauty already existing in the gardens.

The light installation will feature tens of thousands of components.

“My site visit reinforced the notion of a garden being made up from a series of interconnected outside rooms,” Munro said regarding his first visit to Brookgreen.

“It also left me with an impression that the ‚Äėgarden rooms,‚Äô populated by figurative sculptures, were surrounded by an untamed landscape. It‚Äôs a magical place with an edge of the unknown.”

This exhibit will be the only opportunity to experience Munro’s installations in the Eastern United States in 2020.
