CHEEKWOOD IS THRILLED to host the second-ever North American exhibition of Light, a stunning outdoor art installation by acclaimed British artist Bruce Munro. Using an inventive array of materials and hundreds of miles of glowing optic fiber, Munro's fascination with light as an artistic medium will transform Cheekwood’s beautiful gardens into an enchanting, dream-like landscape. This site-specific exhibition follows a wildly popular U.S. debut at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania,
and has been uniquely designed by the artist to incorporate Cheekwood's gentle hills, expansive views and magnificent gardens. At the center of the exhibition's many installations will be the Field of Light, which submerges the viewer within a landscape of 20,000 lighted glass spheres, each rising from the ground on a slender stem. The sheer volume of spheres, the glow of the lights and the gentle shapes create an effect that is both natural and otherworldly. Cheekwood will offer extended hours on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings until 11 pm to present this grand-scale exhibition in its most stunning state: under the night sky.
