New Bedford Art Museum / ArtWorks! brings the magic of art to the South Coast & beyond.

We are forging a new and exciting hub for the arts in New Bedford. We bring dynamic and innovative exhibitions to our galleries to offer new things to see and enjoy. Not only local artists and themes, but works from both iconic and emerging artists from around the world. We share the artists’ stories and illuminate the art. Through lectures, special presentations and gallery talks with the artists and curators, we add insights and perspectives that broaden and deepen the experience. We want you talking and thinking about what you see here!
