Bruce Gendelman’s artworks explore landscapes, portraiture, the Holocaust, and, most recently, the Covid-19 pandemic, in a range of media including photography, sculpture, oil, and multi-media installations. His large-scale body of Holocaust works was the focus of solo exhibitions at the National Museum of American Jewish History, the Holocaust Memorial Center, and the Palac Sztuki in Krakow, Poland, fittingly, a museum that once served as a Nazi headquarters.

His artwork is in the permanent collections at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Center, and the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.
