iCreate 2022: Annual Juried Exhibition of High School Talent

July 1, 2022 - September 4, 2022

iCreate serves as an outlet for emerging artists, amplifying the scope of their pieces' influence and providing the community a glimpse into regional artistic potential. The works submitted are from diverse artists and mediums and explore different themes ranging from critiques of traditional social constructs to playful portraits, fond memories, race, identity, nature, and animal welfare. While the pandemic and the New Bruce construction have made it impossible to mount the exhibition in person over the past two years, we are excited to present iCreate again virtually this year.

The Bruce Museum is grateful for exhibition support from the Rockefeller Capital Management, Greenwich, the Connecticut Office of the Arts, the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Foundation, John and Susan Hart, Horseneck Club of Greenwich, Susan and Bill Mahoney, Chris and Bill Nichols, and Heidi and Scott Smith.
