We visited the Bruce twice this weekend: the first time to see an interesting exhibit of Toulouse-Lautrec's posters and sketches, and a smaller exhibit of Nikon's cellular photography. The T-L showed some familiar posters, and many less familiar sketches that showed off his unique ability to create a profile with a minimum of strokes. The photos of cells and embryos were breathtakingly beautiful: each was a work of art, but of a living creature at its embryonic stage. The next day, we returned with our 10-yr old grandson to walk through the rest of the museum's exhibit of the interchange of human and natural management of our land, air and sea environments. He was old enough to appreciate touching a meteorite, looking at dinosaur footprints. and viewing an animation of the inter-continental movement over 500 billion years. The museum offers classes, but none when we were there. It was a good visit of about 2 hours.
Thank you for spending the weekend at the Bruce Museum. Your grandson may enjoy our Toulouse-Lautrec Family Day on October 22, 1 pm to 4 pm. We will have fun art activities, sit for a unique portrait by caricaturist Dan Springer and see a Toulouse-Lautrec painting come to life with mime and moving statue Linda Peck. At 1:45 and 2:45 pm, travel to Paris with French-inspired dance performances by Allegra Dance Greenwich.
We appreciate you kind review!
