Curated With Care.
The Solarbron art collection began with this vision of its founders Sol and Alrene Bronstien. As noted art collectors in the area, they started incorporating their art collection onto the property for residents to enjoy. From there, it grew and grew. Now Solarbron covets more than 240 uniquely curated pieces from a wide range of genres.
