About

ArtBridge: First Exposure 2009, was a 480 linear feet, first-of-its-kind exhibition that hung for nearly 365 days on the scaffolding surrounding historic London Terrace Gardens on W. 23rd Street between 9th and 10th avenues. It featured the work of 26 local emerging artists, garnering the attention of local and international media outlets, other arts organizations and city agencies.

Conceived as a one-time project by artist and designer, Rodney Durso, it marked the beginning of the ArtBridge as an organization, whose greater mission is to bring similar installations to neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs, beautifying communities while giving unprecedented exposure to emerging artists.
