Bruce Nauman’s Violins Violence Silence is the BMA’s most visible artwork. 

The now-iconic neon sculpture was installed on the museum’s facade in 1984—it was a gift from the Leo Castelli Gallery after a groundbreaking BMA survey of Nauman’s work. 

The piece recently came down for much-needed restoration that will cost approximately $120,000, and the BMA’s Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art launched a fundraising effort. 

It includes a few public events, and the first one, a cocktail party, takes place this Thursday evening at artist Lat Naylor’s Bolton Hill home. 

Anyone interested in attending and/or donating can call 443-573-1763 for more info.
