New Bedford Art Museum
The south coast is rich in culture, history, and diversity. And rich in art! New Bedford Art Museum/ArtWorks! is at the heart of New Bedford’s Seaport Cultural District. Located in the historic downtown, NBAM/ArtWorks! offers engaging exhibitions and outstanding educational programs for members and visitors of all ages.
On February 3, 2014, New Bedford Art Museum and ArtWorks! Partners for the Arts & Community merged. The combining of these two long-standing art organizations has created an exciting organization committed to serving the community and beyond. At the core of what we do is making art accessible to everyone.
Offering engaging exhibitions of artwork from around the corner and across the ocean, there’s always something exciting and thought-provoking to see. Linger, learn and appreciate art and artistic expression strolling through the Museum’s main Skylight Gallery. You’ll discover new delights as you explore the Museum’s home, a former bank that creates a unique and unusual setting for art. Continually changing exhibitions across the year vary in subject matter and artistic medium. Contemporary and historic art, as well as local, national and international artists, have been displayed. A great schedule of programs such as lectures, artist talks, and inspired performances adds depth and context to your experience of the art.
