What's the 2501?
November 2018 Branch Museum Newsletter
We are starting to get really excited about all that will be happening here at The Branch for the holidays! A new event we are hosting this holiday season is Gingerbread Date Night--leave the kiddos at home and bring a friend or loved one to see The Branch House decorated for the holidays and enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres provided by Mosaic.

This November, we are hosting a exhibition of Sandy Bond’s beautiful artwork -- many people don’t realize that this talented architect is a wonderful artist. You need to come experience his work for yourself.

In addition, next month we will be unveiling our Centennial Lecture Series, to celebrate 100 years of The Branch House. Stay Tuned and see you at The Branch!

Planer Assemblages, Furniture and Other Works : Sanford Bond
Vitrines 17-19, 2017
November 8 – January 6, 2019

As co-founder and principal of 3North Architects, and a practitioner in Richmond for almost half a century, Sanford Bond has shaped some of the city’s most iconic buildings, such as the Richmond Ballet, the American Civil War Museum, and the Maymont Aviary. As both an architect and a sculpture artist, Bond's career has focused on creating places by defining space with various materials. The materials of his sculptures are common industrial materials: structural steel, glass, wood, plexi glass or concrete. He exploits the unique characteristics of each medium in the work which lends an appropriateness and timeless quality to them.
