ArtBridge empowers emerging artists to transform urban spaces. New York City currently has a staggering 192 miles of street-level construction scaffolding. This ubiquitous construction eats away at the fabric of our neighborhoods. Since 2008, ArtBridge has transformed this eyesore into a canvas for local, emerging artists. These exhibitions have resulted in incredible exposure for artists, while artfully reinvigorating our urban landscape. ArtBridge is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

We’re thrilled to partner with ArtBridge again to transform fences near the new Barclays Center into a public gallery . . . It provides neighborhood residents, commuters and Barclays event-goers a chance to experience terrific art in this outdoor setting”.
