Join us for the 8th stop on our Museum Trail – we are circling back to the Bruce Museum of Arts and Science in Greenwich. Susan Ball '78 PhD, Deputy Director, will lead us on tour of their new exhibit “Her Crowd: New Art by Women from Our Neighbors’ Private Collections”.
Only yesterday, it seems, one was hard-pressed to name more than a handful of successful women artists; now the list would be extensive, and the choices rich and varied. Although numerous recent exhibitions have featured women’s art, scant attention has been paid to the collecting of art created by women. In fact, private collections are in the process of being dramatically transformed. Greenwich and nearby communities in Fairfield and Westchester counties are home to a number of the finest contemporary collections, and thus to some of the most exciting art being made today.
Her Crowd will offer the rare opportunity to see what some of America’s most influential collectors of contemporary art consider beautiful, important, and compelling.
