Community art show to open at Bruce Museum

March 7, 2019

GREENWICH—The community art project “Your Place Squared” will be unveiled this Saturday in the Bruce Museum’s Bantle Lecture Gallery.

The exhibition features more than 500 community-submitted 6”x6” works of art in mediums including oil paintings, watercolors, photographs, ceramics, writings and more. The pieces are displayed side by side in a colorful array featuring work from professional artists and young children alike.

The work is submitted anonymously with the theme of being any scene, setting or space that is treasured by the artist.

“As a community-based institution highlighting art, science, and natural history, an exhibition featuring art about the places that mean the most to our members and visitors is a wonderful project for the Bruce to support,” exhibition organizer Anne von Stuelpnagel said. “We look forward to displaying all kinds of imaginative works.”

The Bruce Museum presented an exhibit “Your Face Squared” in 2002 that featured community-submitted self portraits.

“Your Place Squared” opens Saturday but will continue taking submissions and grow throughout the life of the exhibit, which ends on June 2.
