The Bridge Program

The Bridge Program fosters generative dialogue among a select group of artists in a seminar-style course designed to push your art practice into new realms. You’ll work in an intensive, small-group setting to refine project ideas, better articulate the central concerns of your practice, deepen the conceptual grounding of your work, and situate your practice within a wider art world context. You’ll participate in critiques, writing sessions, essay discussions, and a public artist talk at the culminating program showcase in the Art Center’s Muller Meeting Room and 4833 Project Space. Advanced artists in all media are encouraged to apply.
