Welcome to BridgesCreate.com
Barbara Bridges has been an artist and a teacher/college professor for almost 40 years.
Her sculptures have been exhibited in Guatemala, Mexico, Canada, Spain, the Virgin Islands, Maine, Miami, Maryland, Chicago and throughout Minnesota.

Barbara creates social practice art from fabricated components in a variety of media and eco-rescued "power objects". She manipulates the objects to create meaning and provoke discussions and reflection on a wide variety of social topics including agricultural practices (Ode to Gluten), living a considered life (Talking Chairs and Academia Nuts), water quality (Found In Our Water), recovery (Reflection Pool) and Feminism (Three Waves and La Mujer). See bridgescreate.com. She is a sculptor on a mission to demonstrate how art can serve as a catalyst for social change and is committed to creating, and empowering others to create, high quality art objects which honor their powerful message.
Three Waves

Three Waves

I have spent a lifetime pondering waves. Hailing from Maine, over the last 64 years I have experienced, and reflected on, the impact of waves on us as biological organisms – often fighting against each other. Where the waves meet is where the action is.  As a scholar, I have spent many hours examining, oftentimes in excruciatingly minute detail, theoretical waves of human thought. Waves deliver tranquility, sustenance and insight – along with trash and terror. All Events

Found In Our Water

Found In Our Water

Our concern for the quality of our water should be an international dialogue. I seek collaborators to stage panel discussions, exhibitions with local artists, student workshops, school visits and adult events around the planet.
