Experience NewBridge on the Charles

Art Curator

Turning volunteerism into an art form
The fact that more than 3,000 pieces of original art hang throughout Hebrew SeniorLife's campuses can be attributed to NewBridge curator Natalie Wolf, who for the past 35 years has volunteered her time and energy bringing art into the community.

In 1975, while serving as a Trustee and member of the Women's Auxiliary for the former Hebrew Rehabilitation Center for the Aged, former president Maurice May asked her to create an art collection. While Natalie had no formal background in art, she had an innate propensity for understanding what others would find meaningful and appealing.

Over the years her collections of varied art mediums have delighted many. Five years ago, she enlisted the help of her longtime friend, Phyllis Robbins, to help her put together the collection of art for NewBridge on the Charles. The two spent countless hours visiting studios and museums and driving throughout the region to locate the perfect works of art for each area of the campus.

The collection at Newbridge contains over 1,000 pieces of original artwork representing all media and featuring established and emerging New England artists.
