GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Bruce Museum in Greenwich is set to open "Her Crowd: New Art by Women from Our Neighbors’ Private Collections," on Sept. 24.

Greenwich and the nearby communities in Fairfield and Westchester counties are home to a number of contemporary collections, and thus to art by women being made today. The exhibition will offer the opportunity to see what some of America’s most influential collectors of contemporary art consider beautiful, important, and compelling.

Running the gamut from established figures to newcomers, the exhibition includes work by Yayoi Kusama, Kiki Smith, Betye Saar, Annie Lapin, Margaret Lee, Carol Bove, Dana Schutz, Jessica Stockholder, Jenny Saville, and Tara Donovan, among others.

The exhibition will offer a glimpse into the interchange between contemporary artists and their collectors. The exhibition is co-curated by Kenneth E. Silver, New York University professor of modern art and Bruce Museum adjunct curator of art, and Mia Laufer, PhD candidate at Washington University in St. Louis, and Zvi Grunberg Resident Fellow.

A scholarly exhibition catalog, featuring a foreword by Peter C. Sutton, The Susan E. Lynch executive director of the Bruce Museum, and essays by the curators, also includes catalog entries and color illustrations of the works in the show.
