Bruce Museum to Take Part in CT Open House Day


The Bruce Museum announced plans to participate in the 14th Annual Connecticut Open House Day – a unified celebration of the state’s world of art, history, and tourism – on Saturday, June 9.

During this one-day event, the Bruce, along with more than 200 other organizations and attractions throughout the state, will open its doors to visitors free of charge. To qualify for any Open House Day special, at least one person in each visiting group must show a valid Connecticut driver’s license.

This statewide event, sponsored by the Connecticut Office of Tourism (COT), is designed to broaden awareness among residents of Connecticut’s exceptional cultural and tourism assets and encourage them to become ambassadors who share their newfound discoveries with visiting family and friends.

Saturday, June 9, marks the opening of the 9th annual “iCreate” exhibition, a juried show spotlighting fine art created by local high school students. Continuing through Aug.12, iCreate 2018 features more than 40 artworks created by students competing for cash prizes and includes a catalogue and digital presentation of all participating students’ work.

Also on display in the Bruce Museum galleries during Connecticut Open House Day: “Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War,” “National Geographic Photo Ark,” and “Wild Bees: Photographs by Paula Sharp and Ross Eatman.”
