For more than 30 years, DrawBridge has provided free expressive arts programs that connect children with creativity in shelters, affordable housing facilities, and community centers across the Bay Area. This spring, the work of these talented children will be celebrated with a new exhibition, Drawn Together: Celebrating DrawBridge Youth Artists.

As part of the celebration, the works of DrawBridge youth artists will be exhibited at each of their program sites, complete with receptions for families and caregivers. A traveling pop-up exhibition of the children’s works will follow, hosted by local business and community centers throughout the Bay Area. An online exhibition will accompany the show.

The exhibition concludes with a closing party for the public, June 11 from 2-4 pm at the Marin Art and Garden Center. This family-friendly event will feature a viewing of the exhibition in the center’s studios and gardens, plus family activities, picnic treats, and auction. All proceeds benefit DrawBridge expressive arts programs for children.

We invite you to join us in celebrating these talented youth artists!
