The centerpiece of the New Bruce is the Richter wing, a three-tale addition that is integrated with the present-day composition.

“Today, it is about a new setting up, but it’s also about a bigger thought,” said Robert Wolterstorff, the govt director of the museum. “The new Bruce is a wholly re-imagined, re-invented Bruce museum.”

The Richter Wing presents group spaces and embeds the Museum in Bruce Park Nature and Local community as never right before. The new major entrance faces Museum Travel, and the community spaces of the floor floor, entered from the park, are absolutely free to site visitors. There is onsite eating for the initially time, an expanded Lecture Hall, a greater Museum Retail outlet, and a Convention Home. Science exhibition and instruction lecture rooms will extend to fully occupy the outdated museum room.

Above a 27-year vocation in the arts and museum management, Wolterstorff has held curatorial and exploration positions, most just lately at the Bennington Museum in Vermont, and earlier at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Clark Artwork Institute, the Williams University Museum of Artwork, and the college’s Chapin Rare Guide Library.

Wolterstorff served as a trustee for the New England Museum Affiliation from 2006 to 2015. Wolterstorff attained a grasp of high-quality arts and a doctorate in artwork record from Princeton University. He has a masters in artwork background from Williams College or university and a bachelors in biology from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The Greenwich Retired Men’s Affiliation delivers a free of charge program every single Wednesday at 11:00am.
