Nexus Award


Nexus Award 2014

Join us Tuesday, May 6, 2014
7pm Reception, 8pm Ceremony
Remarks by Alan Avery, Owner, Alan Avery Art Company

Owner and Director, Susan Bridges, opened Whitespace in 2006 with the mission to encourage open artistic expression and to promote original, unconventional projects. Bridges is Atlanta-bred and a tireless city booster, art collector, activist, volunteer, supporter of public art, and, importantly, a mentor and advocate to artists. When she is not working, she is thinking about art––primarily about how to engage and educate the greater community and how to support the tremendous number of talented artists living and working in Atlanta.
