Bridge Program Alumni


“Being able to work with and talk with other artists of many different mediums and backgrounds . This helped enrich my practice. In a way this served as an amazing think tank for me.”

“I found having to articulate my ideas regularly to be most valuable. In person crits were also fantastic.”

“I also learned a lot by listening to other artist’s process.”

“I spent a lot of time and mental energy thinking about my work in a new way.”

“Great program. HPAC went put of its way to help us put together a group show even with the pandemic restrictions in place and it was a very good experience and much appreciated.”

“This program was a fantastic experience. I hope Hyde Park Art Center continues to offer the program long into the future. I believe it is helpful to artists at all stages of their career.”

“This was a great opportunity for adult disciplined artists to work in a concentrated way on a new body of work. The cross pollination with other artists in the program was invaluable. It was great to get a chance to explore an idea and share it with the group.”

“It’s great to have an opportunity to show work at the art center, and the work is beautifully displayed. The show pushed me to bring work to a more refined finish than I might otherwise have done.”
