The Bruce Contemporaries is a dynamic group of art and culture enthusiasts between the ages of 25 and 45 who enjoy insider access to the Bruce Museum and the exclusive events, educational, and networking opportunities. Credit longtime Bruce member and active volunteer Grace Djuranovic for providing the spark that brought this new member group together. Grace recognized the opportunity to engage young local families in a more sustained, inclusive way. So far the Bruce Contemporaries has attracted nearly 70 members and is looking forward to welcoming more members. Here are 5 reasons to join the Bruce Museum’s Bruce Contemporaries.
Bruce Contemporaries attended their first private art collection tour on April 10 and over 20 guests enjoyed touring an important collection of contemporary art. Artists in the collection include Magdalena Abakanowic, Robert Arneson, Deborah Butterfield, Alexander Calder, David Hockney, Yayoi Kusama, Larry Poons, Martin Puryear, and Kiki Smith. The collectors treated Bruce Contemporaries to many personal stories about how they acquired specific works, why they collect certain artists, which artists are their favorites, and even how they include and teach their children art collecting. It was a fascinating view into the minds of two focused collectors who are passionate about collecting and living with art.
