YMCA of Greenwich and The Brant Foundation Art Study Center offer art education

Summer camp students can enjoy a unique art educational experience, thanks to a new partnership between the YMCA of Greenwich and The Brant Foundation Art Study Center.

YMCA after-school locations will be offering presentations in June and in May, students will be visiting the Brant Foundation for educational tours of an exhibition by artist Dan Colen.

During summer camp, groups of campers will be visiting the Foundation for an afternoon of tours, workshops, and a picnic lunch underneath artist Urs Fischer’s Big Clay sculpture, located directly outside of the Foundation on the Greenwich polo fields.

Lee Ann Borg, Youth and Family Director at the YMCA of Greenwich, and Emily McElwreath, Director of Communications and Education at The Brant Foundation, are working together to make this partnership possible. Ms. McElwreath stated in a press release, “We are very pleased to be partnering with the YMCA of Greenwich to give local children an opportunity to increase their appreciation of contemporary art.”

Ed Philipp, CEO of the YMCA commented, in a press release, “For our children to be exposed to world class art in such an intimate setting presents a truly unique perspective for them. We are very appreciative of The Brant Foundation Art Study Center for making this possible. For the YMCA, this is another example of how we are helping provide resources and opportunities to our community they might now otherwise have.”
