Bruce Museum blends art and science

The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut, presents more than a dozen new exhibitions in art and science every year. It’s a critically important part of the cultural fabric of the community and the museum has been recognized for its efforts to consistently address new subjects of remarkable beauty or great interest with new insights.

The museum has also enjoyed a 20-year partnership with Bank of America, a reflection of the bank’s belief that museums can be a source of education, emotion and creative inspiration – boosting local economics and connecting people.

For example, on the first weekend of each month, Bank of America sponsors free admission for its customers at the Bruce Museum through a program called Museums on Us.

Recently, Bank of America and our Merrill Lynch and U.S. Trust divisions have helped bring several exhibits to the museum, including William Abranowicz’s photographs of the primeval forest in our midst in “Mianus River Gorge” and the recent “Electric Paris,” an exhibition of paintings, prints, photographs and drawings, and Bank of America’s Arts in Communities traveling exhibit “Science in Motion,” a collection of photographs of scientific studies by three prominent photographers — Eadweard Muybridge, Harold Edgerton and Berenice Abbott — illustrating the links between art and science.

In June 2017, we will be sponsoring “Spring into Summer with Andy Warhol and Friends,” an exhibit of Warhol’s work along with a fresh focus on contemporary pop art.

Through programs such as lecture series, tours, after-school classes for more than 20,000 area students annually and activity days for families, the efforts of the museum and Bank of America together will ensure that these valuable educational resources are available to all.
