GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Bruce Museum galleries will dabble with the Seven Deadly Sins this summer as part of a series of exhibitions throughout Greenwich and Westchester, N.Y.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Pride will open on June 27 and run through Oct. 18 at the Bruce Museum of Arts and Sciences, 1 Museum Drive.
The exhibit is the first collaboration by the seven members of the Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance and will attempt to place the sin of “pride” within a historical context in an art exhibit.
“The Seven Deadly Sins have played a significant role in theology, literature and art since the Middle Ages,” said Bruce Museum Deputy Director and exhibit curator Susan Ball in a statement. “Pride, or superbia, represents the mother of all sins and the one from which all others arise -- the root of a many-branched tree. It’s a fascinating, intriguing subject, and we’re delighted to be presenting it at the Bruce.”
Complementing the exhibit with be several unique programs, beginning with the Superbia Soire?e from 6-8 p.m. on July 17 at the Bruce Museum. The after-hours event is open to public and grant special access to the exhibit and a host of activities such as a grown-up scavenger hunt and a specialized curator’s tour featuring the gallery’s artists.
