Celebrating 100 years of art

The Bruce Museum will continue its centennial celebration this year with its three-part exhibition featuring recent and promised gifts to the museum’s permanent collection.

According to the Bruce’s Executive Director Peter Sutton, the permanent art collection at the museum includes more than 15,000 objects representing a wide variety of world cultures, with special strengths in American and European art.

“Each piece serves to inspire the shows that we organize and they are all essential to the many object-based educational programs that we offer at the Museum,” he said.

The celebration, entitled Marking a Century, Part II, includes several extraordinary textiles and costumes, including a nine and a-half-foot-long bridal veil made of Belgian lace, an elaborately embroidered Art Deco evening coat and a Kashmir shawl.

Installed in the Arcade Gallery, the exhibition will be on view through Nov. 4. The final exhibition in the series, which will feature prints, photographs and other works on paper, opened in the Lecture Gallery on Sept. 29.
