Bruce Munro: Light in the Gardenfeatures unique installations created from hundreds of miles of optic fiber by Munro, a British artist internationally acclaimed for his use of light as an artistic medium. The Garden transforms at dusk with imaginative, luminous works of art. Arrive early to enjoy the daylight beauty of the Garden and stroll the newly developed Gardens of Storza Woods.
Light is a site-specific exhibition and the largest by the artist in the Southeast. “This show will be something unlike any other that Atlantans have experienced,” says Garden President & CEO Mary Pat Matheson. “At dusk, the Garden will become this enchanting landscape that visitors just have to see to believe.”
