Looking Forward to 2021 Events
Art as a Partner in Health program has been cancelled
Unfortunately, the Bruce Museum has had to close due to a construction related issue and the “Art as a Partner in Health” program – planned in partnership with the Greens at Greenwich, on Friday, January 15th, from 1:00pm-2:30pm – has been canceled. The Greens at Greenwich and the Bruce Museum are committed to continuing to work together to create programming focused on the intersection of mental health and the arts.

Take Another Look: Art as a Partner in Health Part 2: Music and Movement
A Virtual Interactive Experience
Friday, January 15, 2021, 1:00 to 2:30 pm
In an unprecedented time of reflection, we will explore the universal language of music and movement in a partnership with the Bruce Museum. During this workshop participants will explore how our health and well-being may improve from taking a closer look and find an authentic expression through the arts. Presented “live” from the Bruce Museum’s special exhibition, “She Sweeps with Many Colored Brooms: Paintings and Prints by Emily Mason,” participants will explore abstract art through the lens of music and movement while experiencing a select number of pieces. The exhibition runs through March 21, 2021.
Presenters will be Dance/Movement Therapist, Beth Liebowitz, Music Therapist, Caroline Greco and introduced by Drama Therapist, Maria Scaros, all from The Greens at Greenwich.
