In 2015, Watson created Span The Gap. The pertinent exhibition included works from 25 local Savannah artists who all created works of Savannah's iconic bridge to celebrate the structure's 25TH birthday. The gallery served as an community gathering space to discuss awareness of the controversial name attached to the bridge.
