CONNECTICUT---The galleries of the Bruce Museum will be bursting with pride this summer and into fall: "The Seven Deadly Sins: Pride" opened on June 27, part of a groundbreaking series of area exhibitions exploring the Seven Deadly Sins. Presented by seven members of the Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance, the Seven Deadly Sins exhibitions represent the FWMA's first ever collaborative effort.
