"The Bridge Builders projects are a vehicle for people to participate in defining and expressing their visions of community. This exhibition is the physical representation of individual responses that, when taken together, culminates in a broader expression of hope."
"Participation in the Bridge Project has been, for me, an important lesson on group work, community participation, and the relevance of public art. The warm and overwhelming response to the project attests to the power of public art to generate good will, cooperation, and to remind the community of its good qualities."
"When has such a singular idea, resulting in such an uncommon question, spawned such a family of responses? When have we ever been asked to participate in such a pure and guiless ballot with no one to elect, nothing to purchase, but with participation as its own reward, and bridge building the result?"
