"Outstanding artworks are in museum vaults and private collections; let's make that art available to everyone."

Alice Walton

"This is about engaging communities through providing access and learning opportunities, as well as allowing for experimentation in exhibition development."

Art Bridges encourages institutions to consider their own collections, galleries, and exhibitions in tandem with the Art Bridges collection in order to activate their visitors' experiences.
