By Katelyn McWatter, Editorial InternStamford, Conn.–Ceebraid-Signal, the developer of Highgrove—Stamford’s first ultra-luxury condominium development—is bringing art to southern Connecticut, not only through creating elegant architecture, but funding museum exhibitions. Ceebraid-Signal has made a donation in support of the Bruce Museum’s upcoming 20th Century American Prints from the Bruce Museum Collection. The exhibition will highlight the printmaking techniques used by a number of 20th Century artists. “The exhibition is consistent with the image of the condo. Buyers are people who would visit and appreciate the museum,” says Jason Schlesinger, principal of Ceebraid-Signal.Creating a limited number of prints became one of the primary means of exposure for artists after World War II. Printmaking was also developed further in the 1970’s as a means of illustration and political promotion. The Printmaking exhibition will share the museum with another show, Reclaimed: Paintings from the Collection of Jacques Goudstikker, which features works that survived the Nazi Invasion in the Netherlands. “Bruce Museum is an important part of the Fairfield community, and Highgrove wants to be associated with this exhibition,” Schlesinger says.Ceebraid-Signal is also continuing construction on Highgrove—a 93-unit building located on 992 Summer St. in Stamford. The luxury residences seek to combine a modern lifestyle with classic architecture. Highgrove will include access to an indoor pool with a retractable roof, private health club, private wine cellar, screening room, valet parking and private entry elevator access to each residence. Units are priced from $2.5 million upwards. The building is not expected to open until October 2009, and it is currently 45 percent sold.
