Programs for Reducing Stigma and Promoting Wellness

Bridge Art Gallery

Bridge Art Gallery is a community gallery that provides a space for local artists to display their work, and creates a comforting and therapeutic environment for patients, families, and employees. Our aim is to diminish the stigma and hesitance associated with entering our part of the Medical Center. The gallery hosts three shows a year with a spring show dedicated to high school artists. Gallery efforts also include an installation of Albert Paley’s internationally renowned sculpture in the Mental Health and Wellness atrium, and the creation of a permanent collection now on display on our ground floor. For more information, including current calls for art, please visit the Gallery Facebook page and the Gallery website. For questions, please email
