The Bridge Program

The Bridge Program fosters generative dialogue among a select group of artists (10 artists max), 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.

Application for Spring 2020 is below, we will contact artists the week of March 30, 2020, to confirm participation. This is a competitive program so unfortunately there is no guarantee, but all are encouraged to apply!
