Bruce Munro at Brookgreen: Southern Light

Internationally known artist Bruce Munro will bring his spectacular, large-scale light sculptures to the Brookgreen Gardens, in Myrtle Beach, allowing visitors to literally see the beautiful flora in a new light, from 8 to 11 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays until September 12.

The exhibit will feature seven works of art in light and mixed media, each designed specifically for the natural garden rooms where they will be installed. The illuminated installations will be comprised of tens of thousands of components.

After his first visit to Brookgreen, Munro said, “My site visit reinforced the notion of a garden being made up from a series of interconnected outside rooms. It also left me with an impression that the ‘garden rooms,’ populated by figurative sculptures, were surrounded by an untamed landscape. It’s a magical place with an edge of the unknown.”
