By Bruce Munro

Location: Great Lawn

(Back to Art on the Grounds)

Over the course of Munro’s career, he has returned again and again to certain materials and concepts, refining them and reimagining them to fit new locations. Such is the case with Silver Sea, which draws inspiration from installations Munro has presented for over a decade at various venues. This iteration, spreading across Montalvo’s expansive Great Lawn, pays tribute to two specific images that have inspired and fascinated Munro for years: one, a moment in Voyage of the Dawn Treader and the other, Georgia O'Keeffe’s lyrical Sky Above the Clouds series.
