Experience the Desert Botanical Garden near Arcadia at night! The Bruce Munro: Sonoran Light at Desert Botanical Garden showcases eight large-scale, light-based installations using an inventive array of materials and hundreds of miles of glowing fiber optics. The exhibits are displayed throughout the Garden. British artist Bruce Munro is best known for large immersive light-based installations inspired primarily by his interest in shared human experience and connection. The site-specific exhibition reflects his unique interpretation of the Sonoran Desert.
This extraordinary new exhibit includes:
-Field of Light, featuring 30,000 individual spheres of gently blooming light nestled on the hillside of the Garden Butte, cascading down onto the Sonoran Desert Nature Loop Trail.
-Saguaro, inspired by the colossal cactus, this piece stands as a marker to show what caught Munro’s imagination during his very first visit to the Garden.
-Temperate Zone, Munro’s interpretation of the ingenious cooling pots created by the indigenous population of the Southwest hundreds of years ago.
-Water Towers, where 58 glowing towers grace the Garden among the iconic saguaro cacti.
-Chindi, suspended in elegant form from the structures of the Sybil B. Harrington Succulent Gallery.
-Beacon, Eden Blooms and Fireflies installations will further engage in dialog with visitors and the desert landscape.
