One of this summer’s — really this year’s — most anticipated exhibitions finally kicks off this weekend.
Longwood Gardens’ epic Light Installations By Bruce Munro debuts this Saturday, June 9. Longwood Gardens commissioned renowned UK light artist Bruce Munro to present a garden-wide exhibition that offers guests the rare opportunity to explore Longwood Gardens after hours.
Light, a U.S. premiere, illuminates 23 acres of the Gardens with 11 large-scale, site-specific light installations, seven outside in areas not usually seen by the public, three inside the grand four-acre conservatory and a small collection of illuminated sculptures in Longwood’s historic Music Room. All materials are repurposed, recycled or composted.
There’s a whole schedule of cool programming being held in conjunction with the exhibit; stay tuned for updates throughout the summer.
If ever there was an excuse to leave the city and head for the countryside, this is it.
