A Great Loss

We mourn the loss of artist Gary-Paul Barbosa Prince, who died in January. Barbosa Prince was a driving force for BridgeMakerARTS as our chief strategist and head of curation. An accomplished artist in his own right, he was also passionate about promoting artists through is work here and his Inferno Gallery in East Oakland. He was a good friend and talented collaborator.
