The 11th  Street Bridge Park, a project of the Ward 8-based non-profit Building Bridges Across the River at THEARC, received a  $1.2 million grant from the Kresge Foundation, one of the country’s leading philanthropic organizations. The Kresge Foundation works to expand opportunities in disadvantaged and underserved communities by investing in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services and community development. 

“I think the bridge is going to bring a lot of people together who normally don’t cross paths.”

Tendani Mplubusi-El, Ward 8 Artist and Resident
