2019 Annual Appeal


It is because of you, and supporters like you, that your Museum is emerging as a stronger, farther reaching, vital innovative center for our community. We are proud to see this reflected daily in our galleries, through our programming, and, most importantly, on the faces of new and returning visitors. Our passionate supporters are making this exciting growth possible.

We hope you have noticed how your Museum is playing a larger role curating the creativity of our region.

  • We celebrated record attendance this past year with guests traveling hours, including a school group from NYC, to see the historic exhibition An Intimate Portrait A South Coast Look into The White House Photographs by Pete Souza
  • This past summer marked 24 years of our ever-popular artMOBILE traveling to New Bedford’s neighborhoods bringing creative art activities. For seven weeks, over 1,000 inner-city youth had a positive, safe place to create, explore, and play
  • New partnerships were formed in support of new youth-based community outreach initiatives like Get Out & Art!, held weekly at select NB Housing Authority neighborhoods, and Creative Courts a transformative art mural-style basketball court project with the first location in Clasky Common Park
Thank you for your support!

New Bedford Art Museum/ArtWorks! delivers art, learning, and creative experiences because of you. Everything we do at NBAM/ArtWorks! – from presenting great art and thoughtful programming, to helping create memories for visitors – happens because of gifts from our supporters.
