Welcome to BridgesCreate.com
Barbara Bridges seeks to empower all people to embrace the creative process. She makes art from rescued power objects and artist fabricated components in a variety of media. She organizes the objects to create meaning and to provoke discussions and reflection on a wide variety of social topics. These include: Ode to Gluten (agricultural practices); Onion/Academia Nuts, (HiTech/HiTouch in academia); Found In Our Water (water quality); and Talking Chairs (recovery/worldview truths). She engineers rescued objects to create beautiful and functional art works, which is profoundly satisfying to her on a visceral level. Her commitment to living a considered life and returning objects to circulation - and not to a landfill - is an important objective in her work.
Barbara is available to work with your school or community to develop meaningful programs/projects.
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

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.
