From June 13 through July 26, approximately 40 artworks will be on display after being selected from more than 500 submissions gathered from an open call to regional high schools.

Finalists are selected by a jury of professionals, who determine the Museum exhibition after several rounds of voting. This year’s jury includes Stacey Gershon, Collection Manager at the Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust, as iCreate will coincide with the Museum’s major spring art exhibition, Walls of Color: The Murals of Hans Hofmann, which explores the work of one of the greatest artists and visual teachers of the 20th century.

Every year, iCreate is organized by the Museum’s Youth Committee, [email protected], as a way for youth volunteers to have a meaningful experience at the Museum and obtain various job skills to enhance their resume.

“High school artists and volunteers have created what is now a very exciting annual exhibition for the Bruce Museum,” says Mary Ann Lendenmann, Volunteer Manager and New Media Developer at the Bruce Museum. “It’s a thrill for these young artists to be recognized, moreover we’re delighted to have their work on display in the Museum’s Bantle Lecture Gallery. Each year we are astounded by the quality and originality in the submissions. The museum community looks forward to this showcase of young talent.”

Cash prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place, as well as honorary mention winners, as selected by the jury. An additional award, the [email protected] Award, will be selected by the [email protected] committee. There will also be a People’s Choice Award announced in late June, decided by public vote online at the Museum’s website and by visitors in person. All participating students are eligible for the People’s Choice Award.
