Montalvo Arts Center is proud to announce an astonishing new exhibition by artist Bruce Munro. Featuring 10 light-based works ranging in scale from immersive to intimate, Bruce Munro at Montalvo: Stories in Light will utilize multi-hued waves, clusters, cascades, flocks, and seas of illumination, transforming Montalvo’s historic Villa and its extensive public areas into a breathtaking spectacle of light. The exhibition will be the first time Munro’s work has been publicly on display on the West Coast, and it will represent the largest number of his works ever on view at a single venue. It is made possible in part through the generous support of The Valley Foundation.

 

Bruce Munro at Montalvo blends the highly personal with the poignantly universal, aiming to transcend time and space by inspiring moments of awareness, and inviting viewers to contemplate a world larger and more mysterious than their own existence. Works on view are inspired by Munro’s experiences reading C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia as a child, drawing on imagery that stayed with him over the years. They also reflect on personal recollections and society’s collective memories.
