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. 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.

Inspired by the artist’s interpretations of C. S. Lewis’s “Chronicles of Narnia,” “Stories in Light” promises to transform our sense of wonder at already magical Montalvo.
