Bruce Wolf, lawyer and collector  passed away January 4, 2020. Wolf loved collecting the history of Pittsburgh. He was instrumental in the expansion of the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.  Mr. Wolf led the effort as its board president. From 2007 to 2017, he aided in choosing an architect, planning and fundraising. The museum’s addition includes the Bruce & Sheryl Wolf Interactive Space. It is an area for children and parents to learn about art in a hands-on way.

His love of Pittsburgh is reflected in his collecting.  Wolf searched diligently for paintings and prints that showed Pittsburgh in its early days and during its industrial age. He loved to share his collection with the people of Pittsburgh.  He lent artworks from his collection to exhibitions at Carnegie Museum of Art, The Frick Pittsburgh, the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg and the Duquesne Club.

Bruce Wolf was a long time member of The Manuscript Society.  For an article of Wolf’s collection at The Frick Pittsburgh.
