Bridge Work: A Regional Exhibiton

Group Exhibition

Cultivate is proud to share Bridge Work, in this culminating exhibition of works from the 2023/2024 cohorts of the Midwest groups.

In existence since 2015 and initiated by Jason S. Yi and Leah Kolb (Plum Blossom Initiative), the Bridge Work Professional Development Program is a collaborative endeavor that provides recent art school graduates with opportunities to sustain artistic momentum and transition into a professional studio practice.  Acknowledging the nuances inherent to the contemporary art world, our interest centers on guiding emerging artists to navigate this uncertain terrain by broadening the scope of their professional experiences and community engagement.


In addition to helping sustain artistic practice by providing consistent mentorship, studio spaces, and community outreach programs, the Bridge Work program exposes artists’ work through multiple exhibitions within Wisconsin and beyond. The resulting exhibitions will also serve as a professional development and relationship-building platform to facilitate meaningful artistic exchanges and dialogs among artists and deepen their relationship with the broader community.

The Cultivate Bridgework work is made possible by a grant by the Michigan Arts and Culture Council.
