Our History
The origins of Bridge Projects can be traced back to 2013 when Roberta Ahmanson - Bridge Projects Founder and Board Chair - and Los Angeles painter Linnéa Spransy asked one another: why is it so difficult for living religious traditions and contemporary art practice to coexist under the same roof? They both agreed that Los Angeles as a global cultural capital with a vibrant artist community was the ideal place to imagine a space where these complex questions could be explored. From 2017-2019, Bridge Projects Founding Directors’ Cara Megan Lewis and Linnéa Spransy hosted a number of salon gatherings and in-studio dialogues addressing the intersection of contemporary art and living religious traditions while also developing the foundations for a permanent exhibition space. Bridge Projects opens its first home this October 2019.
