Last Friday evening we went to Nashville to see LIGHT by Bruce Munro at Cheekwood.
We have been to Cheekwood in the past to see artwork by David Chihuly so I knew we would have a nice time walking the grounds. This exhibit is going on until November 10 - if you get a chance, you should check it out. $15/pp
Matt and I spent about 2 hours here. You might spend more time here if you decide to get a drink and listen to either of the two 3-piece bands playing music. You can even dance if the mood strikes you.
My favorite exhibits:
Comprised of 40 structures built out of more than 10,000 one-liter recyclable plastic bottles filled with water and fiber optics connected to LED projectors and audio systems.
I thought they looked awesome! Matt claims he could make this. Ya - I'm sure!
Field of Light
20,000 lighted glass spheres, each rising from the ground on a slender stem.
Looks like a million flowers. I want to walk through them. Maybe pick a few to place in a vase by my bed...
Some other exhibits we saw:This one reminds me of a baby in it's mother's womb. Looks like an umbilical cord. (I think it's actually a plug though.)
What you think? Pretty, huh?
