Bruce Munro At Montalvo Arts Center

"Bruce Munro at Montalvo: Stories in Light" includes "Silver Sea," on display in the Great Lawn at Montalvo Arts Center, from October 25, 2018 through March 2019.  "Silver Sea" takes its visual reference both from C.S. Lewis and from two previous installations by Munro: "Field of Light" exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum (2004) and "Lilies" exhibited at Longwood Gardens (2012). The artist plans to scatter Montalvo’s Great Lawn with clusters of “lilies” created from over 4,000 stems and spheres of light. Seen here is a rendering of the world premiere installation at Montalvo Arts Center.  Rendering courtesy of Bruce Munro.

This fall, Montalvo Arts Center, located on 175 acres in Silicon Valley’s Saratoga Hills, will glow with stunning illuminated ​installations by internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro. As part of this, his first public West Coast exhibition, the renowned British artist will scatter 10 of his light-based works throughout the center’s lawns, gardens, terraces, and historic structures for Bruce Munro at Montalvo: Stories in Light. Inspired by the artist’s readings of C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, these installations will range in scale from enormous and immersive to intimate, utilizing hundreds of thousands of bespoke components to construct multi-hued waves, clusters, cascades, flocks, and seas of light, transforming Montalvo’s historic Villa and extensive public areas into a breathtaking spectacle of illumination. Featuring the largest number of works by Munro ever on public display at a single venue, this exhibition will require hundreds of helpers to install and is expected to attract visitors from around the world to the Saratoga arts center.

The exhibition is made possible in part by a generous gift from The Valley Foundation.
