The Bruce Museum’s history is a rich tapestry of personalities, objects, art, ideas, and community. At the center of it all is a building; a mass of stone, steel, wood, and glass that formed the basis for the institution we all cherish and love today. My passion for this history has led me down a path to learn the minutia about the people and the place. Through the words and images of this exhibition, I am pleased to share some of those details with you. As the Museum embarks on its ambitious expansion plan, it is important to see the progression of change that led to this pathway for an exciting future.
