What is iCreate?

iCreate: Teen Art, is organized by the Bruce Museum’s Youth Committee, Youth@Bruce. We display 40 winning works of art in the Bruce Museum Bantle Lecture Gallery. This year’s iCreate will coincide with the featured Hans Hofmann: Walls of Color exhibition – which explores the work of one of the greatest artists and visual teachers of the 20th Century. iCreate 2015 will be Youth@Bruce’s sixth annual show, and it is bound to be another “best year ever”!
