Spotlighting a Rockefeller collecting tradition

When the Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle next meets, the focus will be on collecting – but it won’t be about casual wanders through the flea market.

The study circle’s presentation, “The Rockefeller Family Collects: Chinese Ceramics at Kykuit,” will be offered March 12 at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich. Cynthia Bronson Altman, Curator of the Collections, Kykuit: The Rockefeller Estate in Pocantico Hills, will be the featured speaker.

As advance materials share, Kykuit, the Dutch word for “lookout,” is the 40-room Beaux Arts mansion built by John D. Rockefeller in 1914 on the highest hill of his 300-acre Westchester property. 

The event will run from 1:15 to 3 p.m. Admission for nonmembers is $25. The Bruce is at 1 Museum Drive.
