Sculpture Garden Gallery

“Bucolic Ballroom Beauty”



Housed in the former Spiegel Catalog warehouse, Sculpture Garden Gallery defines raw urban elegance with a decor that emphasizes reconstruction and refurbished elements and finishes. The architectural elements from this historic 1911 building include timber construction, exposed brick and generous ceiling heights. The elements within the interior that give the space life vary from reclaimed wood and steel to rustic industrial restroom finishes.

Sculpture Garden Gallery’s fully covered outdoor space is finished with recycled slate ground cover and artistic sculptures from various artists supported by Bridgeport Art Center.

Whether planning a small gathering for close friends and family or an extravagant gala, the Sculpture Garden Gallery on the first floor of the Bridgeport Art Center can be transformed for any occasion that demands an exceptional setting.

Caterers and Event Production (lighting, AV, furniture, outdoor rentals –  events with more than table top decor, i.e., floral, candles, props) are required to be selected from our Vendor List
