The Bruce High Quality Foundation is an arts collective in Brooklyn, New York City, formed in 2004. It was "created to foster an alternative to everything." The collective is made up of five to eight rotating and anonymous members, most or all of whom are Cooper Union graduates. The group has attracted attention with the subversive, humorous and erudite style of their work. The group is named after a fictional artist, "Bruce High Quality", who supposedly perished in the 9/11 attack. In 2013, the Bruce High Quality Foundation was the subject of a retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, NY.

In 2007 The Foundation's ongoing project, Public Sculpture Tackle, took place. It tackles the conflict between man's individualistic energy and public art's engineered defenses. Artists in makeshift athletic uniforms and padding leap and lunge against public sculptures in Manhattan including Indian's LOVE sculpture in Midtown, The Queen Elizabeth II Monument in the Financial District, and Beuys's 7000 Oaks in Chelsea.
