A Unique Annual Exhibit

Local interior design professionals team up with Metro Art Studios artists to create a showcase of fine art and interior design in the Crown Gallery at Metro Art Studios to benefit a local organization making a difference in Bridgeport. Each designer features one artist in our version of a “white room challenge”, showing off their design aesthetic and style while highlighting how well fine art works as a focal point.

Join us for a gala reception for the opening of this year's exhibit with ticket proceeds going to support LifeBridge Community Services in Bridgeport, which provides mental health and behavioral services, as well as a diaper bank, clothing closet, and food services for those in need, and offer art programming through their Urban Scholars program to at-risk youth in Bridgeport. We are delighted to support this transformative organization.

$40 tickets include small bites, wine and drinks, and live music. The artist studios will also be open and guests are invited to explore our entire renovated factory. Please come and support our neighbors at LifeBridge Community Services.


Saturday, October 5, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
