Private Contemporary Art Collection Tour

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.
