Bruce ConsTRUCKS Event Kicks Off Next Phase of Expansion

Held on Sunday, September 8, Bruce ConsTRUCKS served as the spirited launch of the public phase of the Campaign for the New Bruce. More than 1,500 Museum and Community members enjoyed a fun afternoon of free, family-oriented activities, including the rare chance to draw on the Museum’s gallery walls prior to the start of renovation work. The occasion also served as an opportunity for Bruce staff and Campaign leaders to thank supporters of the New Bruce and to invite the entire community to join these benefactors in reimagining the Bruce Museum. 

A special thank you to Bruce ConsTRUCKS Co-Chairs Felicity Kostakis, Cricket Lockhart, Julia Nusseibeh, and Candace Procaccini for helping organize such a memorable day!
