Generous grant support from Pasadena Art Alliance made possible a new installation, also titled, Fragile Thoughts. Brucker collaborated with Judson Studios in creating a series of seven antique chairs combined with historical and contemporary glass techniques. The piece communicates the legacy of Elizabeth Milbank Anderson, a turn of the 20th century public health pioneer and Brucker’s inspiration for the piece.
After 18 years, Memorial Project, is now comprised of over 300 panels created from donated articles of clothing given to the artist by friends and family of those who have passed away.
The exhibition opened in September and will be on view to the public through January 2019, during regular museum hours.
