209 Monticello Rd. Farewell Celebration

On November 27th from 1pm-6pm, come collect a souvenir from The Bridge's past, have some refreshments and share your BPAI stories as we have one last gathering at 209 Monticello Rd! This isn't a goodbye to The Bridge, it is a chance to celebrate our vibrant community which has led the way to a new and exciting chapter in supporting creativity and exploration by artists and the public.

We will have refreshment from Champion Brewing Company and other vendors as well as snacks from board-member PK owner of Splendora's Gelato. Good music and vibes will be supplied by WTJU, and be sure to grab some chalk and leave one last mark on the Bridge's chalk wall.

This event is free to the public, and we can't wait to see you there!

We Need Your Help

We are excited to announce that we will be opening up a new 4,300 square foot creative center on the Historic Downtown Mall, opening in the Spring of 2023. At our new location, you will be able to rent low-cost private and semi-private studios through a membership program starting at $30 dollars. That’s only the beginning! You will also be able to socialize and collaborate in our co-working space, gain access to computers and software, or enroll in courses taught by local and national experts on a variety of creative practices and entrepreneurship skills. With a growing list of partners, this new facility will be a hub for collaboration amongst the many creative organizations in our community as much as the curious public.

This new chapter at The Bridge can only happen with your support which has allowed us to arrive at this bold vision for the future. To build this future, we are seeking support in outfitting our new space with the vital facilities, equipment and resources that our community needs. 

We hope that you will help us in our endeavor by making a 
contribution now! And if membership is more your speed, we invite you to pledge monthly support and enter our model of shared responsibility, mutual aid, and a ceaseless push to democratize art. With the holiday season upon us, a membership to The Bridge makes a great gift!

Very sincerely, on behalf of the board and staff,

Jay Simple, Executive Director
