(Rochester Contemporary Art Center)

Big show, small artworks


More than 6,700 anonymous pieces of 6-by-6-inch art are on display at Rochester Contemporary Art Center during the seventh annual International Small Art Exhibition. The exhibition series, 6x6x2014—a fundraiser that benefits RoCo—held its opening ceremony on June 7. All of the pieces are donated for the event and will be on sale for $20.

This year the artwork came from more than 65 countries, up from 45 last year. Each piece is displayed anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed once the piece is bought. Artists include high school, middle and elementary school students, celebrities and well-known artists. Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and Wendell Castle, a nationally renowned artist, are among this year’s artists.

“We are incredibly excited for 6x6,” Blue Cease, executive director and curator at RoCo, says. This year RoCo set its fundraising goal at 2,500 pieces of art, which would be the highest number of pieces ever sold at the event, 200 more than last year, Cease adds.  

Artwork went on sale at the gallery during the opening ceremony, and online purchasing will begin on June 10. The exhibition can be visited until July 13.
