Company Overview

Expanding Access to American Art
Art Bridges works with museums of all sizes to create and support arts programs that educate, inspire, and deepen engagement with local audiences.

Art Bridges is the vision of arts patron Alice Walton. Since 2017, Art Bridges has been creating and supporting programs that expand access to American art in all regions across the nation.

Art Bridges supports the creation of collection-based exhibitions of American art at museums of all sizes. We are also building our own collection, acquiring works of art to be shared with regional museums as long-term loans.

We work closely with our partners to provide various levels of financial support for the direct costs associated with exhibitions, loans and collection sharing, as well as for programming, audience engagement, and evaluation.

Our objectives are to:

  • Expand access to American art, especially in regions where there is currently less access
  • Energize the field of American art by exhibiting and activating works of art in exciting and innovative ways
  • Support partner institutions in deepening their connection with local audiences and their communities
  • Inspire institutions to open their vaults and share important works
  • Connect institutions of varying sizes and scopes in collaborative partnerships that provide opportunities for professional development
How We Work
At Art Bridges, we do things a little differently.
We support partners and projects rather than grantees and grants.

Art Bridges is hiring!

Art Bridges does more than provide financial support to our partners; we actively collaborate with them to develop new exhibitions and programs that deeply engage their current and potential audiences. If you look forward to working hard, challenging yourself, and having a lot of fun along the way, please read on!

Art Bridges is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to building and maintaining a culturally diverse workplace. We encourage women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans to apply.
