Art After Dark

A celebration of the winter solstice and the longest night of the year. The purpose is to bring people together to facilitate the conversation of healing through the depression and anxiety that can be felt this time of year. Art is proven to be therapeutic and calming. This event is a way for the community to learn about art as a way to cope. Experience different mediums and be inspired to learn and create!

Community Outreach

Artsbridge provides free art projects for kids and adults at local events throughout the community. Artsbridge sets up as an outdoor vendor at Marietta First Friday events in Ohio every month of each calendar year. Artsbridge also participates in annual events throughout the area such as Artoberfest, Monster Mash, Shop Small Saturday, as well as other area festivals and events.

Senior Arts Fund

The Marie Ausenheimer Memorial, which was established by the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation from the estate of Marie Ausenheimer, was created to support charitable projects related to the arts that broadly support the interest of the Mid-Ohio Valley area seniors. Artsbridge will reach out regularly to organizations serving seniors in the area and to other local arts organizations to invite requests for funding and to identify good projects to be supported with increased emphasis of the arts programming specifically designed for seniors.
