Internationally acclaimed British artist Bruce Munro presents an eight piece sculpture exhibition at the Hermitage Museum & Gardens. Munro is known for his immersive large scale light-based installations inspired largely by his interest in the shared human experience. Two new installations inspired by Munro's trip to the Hermitage, Lighthouse and Wave, will be on display as well as his popular pieces Field of Light, Water Towers, and Fireflies.

This is Munro's fourth show in the United States, following his exhibitions at Longwood Gardens (Kennett Square, Pa.), Cheekwood Botanical Gardens (Nashville, Tn.) and Franklin Park Conservatory (Columbus, Ohio). Inspired by everything from school boy humour to meditation, Munro's installations resonate with a large audience. Both Longwood and Cheekwood saw over 250,000 visitors, and Longwood's exhibit won the AAM Excellence in Exhibition Award in 2013.

Munro conveys his love of experimentation through flickering fluorescent tubes, LED-lit water bottles, fresnel lenses reminiscent of owl's eyes, and an inventive reuse of materials. During the exhibit, visitors will wander the Hermitage forest, gardens, boardwalk, and the shoreline of the Lafayette River as they are guided by Munro's interactive displays. The museum will also house two pieces, a prototype of a building Munro hopes to create and a permanent suspended artwork in the front foyer.
