Welcome to BridgesCreate.com
Barbara Rogers Bridges has been an artist and a teacher/college professor for over 40 years.
Her social practice sculptures have been exhibited in Maine, Miami, the Virgin Islands, Maryland, Chicago, Mexico, Spain, Canada, and throughout Minnesota.
Bridges taught K-12 art in Minnesota, Maine, and the Virgin Islands. She was voted Art Teacher of the Year twice in Minnesota.

Barbara creates social practice art from fabricated components in a variety of media and rescued "power objects". She manipulates the objects to create meaning and provoke discussions, reflection and ACTION 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 TODAY, I'm Alright) and Feminism (Three Waves, Wonder Woman 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.

Barbara is also the Founder of the non-profit Art To Change The World https://www.arttochangetheworld.org/

The work, TODAY, I’m Alright (In Progress) is focused on  RECOVERY. If you are reading this word, “RECOVERY” it would be unusual if you do NOT know anyone who WAS, IS, or you wish WERE, in RECOVERY. What does that word actually mean? My series is a message of hope.   RECOVERY. Yes, I am shouting.  We are looking at recovery strategies from all trauma: PTSD, Divorce, Addiction, Death, Abuse or Cancer. Join our October 14 Workshop. Each participant will go to the drawers and cupboards to choose a talisman to discuss at the workshop and then take home with them to help in their recovery: Register

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.
