iCreate is an annual art competition that recognizes and celebrates local and young artistic talent. This high school art competition received over five hundred and fifty submissions from thirty-six high schools in the New York and Connecticut region, the collection is diverse in style, media, and subject matter. While some pieces excel on a technical level, others provoke profound thinking and emotional reactions.
The goal of the iCreate program is not only to have these diverse pieces celebrated, but also to young artists to gain confidence and recognition from a respected Museum and their community. Forty-six pieces have been selected for the gallery and will be on display from June 10th to July 17th, 2016. All participating artists are featured in the Youth Committee’s iCreate video presentation.
The People's Choice Award recognizes the public’s favorite artist that participated in Bruce Museum’s regional high school art competition, iCreate 2016.
People's Choice Award winner - Viviane Rivas, self-portrait, marker, AITE, Stamford senior.
