Reception to Welcome the Bridge Artists
Self Discovery: New Paintings from The Bridge is an exhbition of original artworks currently on view in the Chesnut Gallery of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church.

This morning the Arts & Our Faith Committee invites you to a special reception following worship to honor the artists and members of The Bridge staff.
The Bridge is a New York-based nonprofit that serves some of the city’s most vulnerable citizens with a range of social service programs, including mental health and substance abuse treatment, housing, vocational training, healthcare, education and creative arts therapies. Approximately 50 clients participate in the creative arts program. Always a popular draw for members and visitors alike, this exhibition marks the fourth time that the Chesnut Gallery has featured artists from The Bridge.
