Five Reasons to Join The Bruce Museum’s Bruce Contemporaries

Are you looking to get involved in Fairfield County? Interested in art and science? Then the Bruce Museum Contemporaries may just be what you are looking for. 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.

Meet local families

This is a great way to meet young local families who are like-minded and interested in art and science. If you are new to town, then this is a great way to meet other people with common interests.

Score Exclusive Invites to Bespoke Events

Are you looking for more of a behind-the-scenes experience? Then the Bruce Contemporaries might just be what you are looking for. Past events include “Sips on the Sound,” a casual cocktail reception at the Bruce Museum Seaside Center in Greenwich Point Park, a behind-the-scenes tour of the newest aircraft in NetJets’ fleet at Westchester County Airport, and a curator’s tour of the Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition at The Brant Foundation’s new space in New York’s East Village. As a member, you will receive at least four invitations to Bruce Contemporaries social and educational events.

Upcoming Contemporaries events include a private tour of a contemporary art collection in Stamford, a Gallery Crawl along Greenwich Ave., and a return this summer to the Seaside Center for more “Sips on the Sound.”

A Fun Group

When you join the Bruce Contemporaries, you are also gaining access to a group of young couples who love to have fun while supporting the arts and sciences. “I’ve had so much fun as part of the Bruce Contemporaries – it’s a great group of young adults who want to socialize, attend unique or private viewings of art collections, and support the Bruce Museum and all it does for our community,” says member, Hagar Chemali. “I grew up visiting the Bruce and going to its events – it was a key part of my childhood in Greenwich, and I love that I can continue the tradition both as a young adult and for my children.”

Discounts and Early Access to Other Bruce Museum Events

As a member of the Bruce Contemporaries, you have access to discounted tickets to the annual Bruce Museum Gala. In addition, you will have access to early registration to the often sold-out Night at the Museum Family Benefit.

Family/Dual Membership
