Bridge Art Gallery

Healing Within - Current Exhibit

In the past few years, we have seen significant national turmoil and a growing mental health crisis. In response, we ask artists to respond to the theme of Healing Within, while considering topics such as healing, community, and togetherness.
Healing Within Reception Presentation 


The Bridge Art Gallery aims to provide a space for local artists to display their artwork, while at the same time creating a comforting and therapeutic environment for patients, families, and employees. Our hope is to diminish the stigma and hesitance associated with entering our part of the Medical Center. The gallery holds three shows each year.
