Please join us at Art of Design, an inaugural benefit luncheon and panel discussion exploring the intersection of art and design and the ways in which technological advancements impact design. Why do some products stop us in our tracks while others remain unnoticed? Why do some products attain icon status while others fade into obscurity? What are the crucial ingredients of design innovation? Where is design headed in the next 50 years? Learn the answers to these questions and more in a lively, inspiring and enlightening discussion moderated by Cristin Marandino, editor of Greenwich Magazine. Co-Chairs Gretchen Bylow, Judith Wertheimer, Irene Zelinsky along with Advisory Chair Alyssa Keleshian Bonomo have secured several engaging and prominent panelists from fields such as fashion, jewelry design, luxury goods, furniture design, and high-end automobile design.

Thursday, March 21, 6:30 pm. Bruce Museum Movie Night.
The Cardboard Bernini – A film that examines the life and work of artist James Grashow as he spends four years building a giant cardboard fountain, with the intention of putting it outside to dissolve. Inspired by the baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and propelled by a crucial event documented in the film, Grashow is driven to experience the process of creation and loss by making an extraordinary artwork that will be destroyed in the end. This film follows Grashow’s journey, as he questions life's fragility and the artistic process. The evening will feature a VIP Reception and Q&A with James Grashow and producer/director Olympia Stone. Held in partnership with Connecticut Film Festival and Some Things Fishy Catering. Complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be served. $35 in advance / $40 at the door. To purchase tickets in advance, go to the Bruce Museum website.

From food to children’s fairy tales, Fabergé eggs to pharmacology, Eggs-hibition explores the evolution of the egg, its prominent inclusion in creation myths worldwide, the complex simplicity of its design, and the inspiration it imparts to artists who have painted, bejeweled, photographed, and written about them.
