Bruce Munro: Tropical Light – Installation Begins in Darwin CBD

Darwin is one step closer to viewing the new world-class Bruce Munro: Tropical Light exhibition with the installation of the eight illuminated sculptures commencing across the CBD.

Starting with the ‘Water-Towers’ at the Darwin Waterfront Sea Wall, the exhibition will be fully installed by 30 October, ready for the launch on 1 November 2019.

The Bruce Munro Studio team will lead the installation phase, with support from Fusion Exhibition and Hire Services, Bunnings Warehouse, Clontarf Academy and Walk Darwin.

Bunnings Warehouse Darwin and Palmerston are providing the installation teams with tools and equipment as part of their sponsorship agreement.

Bunnings Darwin Activities Organiser Trish Visser said it was a great opportunity to support an event that brings the community together and showcases local artists.

“Our team are proud to be providing some hands-on help with building and installing the installations,” she said.

Volunteers are still being sought to join the Tropical Light 200 Club, with roles such as exhibition hosts, artwork minders and visitor engagement promoters on offer.

All funds raised as part of the volunteer program will go to charity CanTeen, to help Territory families dealing with cancer.

Bruce Munro: Tropical Light is a free event and will run from 1 November 2019 to 30 April 2020. For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, visit
