2021 was a great rebuilding year for 6×6. In 2022 we’re hoping to exhibit even more amazing artworks from all around the world. Each summer Rochester Contemporary Art Center’s (RoCo) 6×6 exhibition brings together thousands of original artworks, made and donated by celebrities, international & local artists, designers, youth and YOU. Each artist may enter up to four artworks of any medium (2D or 3D). Artworks must be six inches square and signed only on the back, to be exhibited anonymously. Participation is free. All artworks will be exhibited and for sale to the public for $20 each to benefit RoCo. Artists’ names will be revealed to the buyer upon purchase and all artworks remain on display through the end of the exhibition. Limit four artworks per school or school group (no limit for colleges). Please be sure each artwork is accompanied by 1 entry for for each artwork. Entry forms can be printed from

Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) founded in 1977. The funds raised through 6×6 enable us to continue providing unique encounters for audiences and extraordinary opportunities for artists including exhibitions, public art, and other programs.
