BDA Prize: Invisible C’Ville • First Fridays Exhibit Opening

The Bridge is pleased to partner with Bushman Dreyfus Architects in inviting you to join us for a First Fridays gallery opening on March 1, 2019 from at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center. All are welcome to attend!

The exhibit displays a diverse range of entries from local artists, designers, and students who submitted their work to INVISIBLE C’VILLE, the 2019 BDA Prize competition.

INVISIBLE C’VILLE called for imaginative, beautiful, and
provocative pieces that express individual truths about Charlottesville. The exhibit as a whole is intended to create a kaleidoscopic view of our community, and contribute to dialogue about its present and possible futures.

Winners will be announced on Wednesday, April 10 during a panel discussion and awards program, co-hosted by Tom Tom Festival.

In May, large-scale versions of the winning entries will be exhibited outdoors, in collaboration with The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative.

The BDA Prize is an annual juried competition focusing on issues in design, education, and community
engagement. Established in 2017, it seeks to better the Charlottesville/Albemarle community through dialogue and
design.
