Following the success of 2012’s Light at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa., artist Bruce Munro has created a new work at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens & Museum of Art in Nashville, Tenn. On view through Nov. 10, the installation features four new artworks—Light Reservation, Fagin’s Urchins, Candelight, and Bell Chandelier, all of which complement pieces that were part of the previous Longwood Gardens display. And those works, such as Field of Light and Water Towers, take on new life in the different setting of Cheekwood’s 55 acres.
Using his signature palette of frosted glass spheres, acrylic rods, and optical fiber, along with LEDs and metal halides, Munro and his team of 10 designers, technicians, and studio staff spent 6,500 hours on the exhibit, and another 2,000 hours installing the work onsite.
“Cheekwood is the most perfect place to exhibit because it provides a variety of opportunities to respond to—each space varies in scale and topographical character,” said Munro in a statement.
