Community Engagement

Got stuff that no longer brings you joy but might be another person’s treasure? THE BRIDGE’s month-long Give & Take will transform the gallery space into a swap shop meets free store meets surplus redistribution meets “curb alert!”. Anyone is welcome to GIVE items to our rotating collection and anyone is welcome to TAKE items free of charge for oneself or as a gift for whomever. Please, no hazardous material– other than that pretty much anything has the potential to find a new life or be turned into something new altogether. GIVE + TAKE will be open the following hours:

December 6-22

  • Monday-Thursday 10-3pm + evening events
  • Fridays 10am-10pm
  • Saturdays 12am-10pm
  • Sundays 12am-4pm


  • Opening: December 6th | 5:30-8:30pm
  • Free Lunch Week: (while supplies last): December 9-13 | 12pm
  • Printmaking: December 12th
  • Gift Forest Day Market: December 14th
  • Telemetry: December 14th
  • Sew•tacular Holiday Sew•a•thon: December 19th | 5:30-8:30pm
