The Bruce Museum's Annual Regional Juried High School Art Exhibition

iCreate serves as an outlet for emerging artists, amplifying the scope of their pieces' influence, and providing the community a glimpse into local artistic potential. There is such a wide range of styles and media within the exhibit. The works are of diverse mediums and explore different themes ranging from critiques of traditional social constructs to playful portraits and statements regarding fond memories, race, identity, nature, climate change, and fantasies.

This regional exhibition inspires enigmatic young minds to embrace their unique styles and to engage with other artists in their age group. The confidence that emerges in young artists who are selected and attention to all the participants is particularly valuable. The iCreate exhibition is a platform to celebrate their passion and creativity.

The volume of the artwork we received was breathtaking, with over 820 submissions to view. Stunning technique and thought-provoking content made the selection for the final exhibit quite challenging. The final selection encompasses some of the best talents in the area and will undoubtedly awe and inspire all audiences. Over 850 submissions were received from 59 Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey high schools to compose this juried selection. All participating students have one of their artworks selected in the video presentation on display in the gallery, and further down on this exhibition page.

iCreate aims to promote the importance of art education, celebrate creativity, and inspire young artists and visitors alike. For further youth engagement, iCreate is planned annually by a team of passionate high school students interning at the Bruce Museum.
