As a cornerstone of New Bedford Art Museum’s foundation, Merry Eustis has been an integral part of this Museum since she and her husband Ralph co-chaired the Special Events Committee for the New Bedford Art Museum’s extensive 1998 “Audubon Legacy” exhibition. Always a champion of the artMOBILE program, Merry and Ralph helped to sustain its impact for decades even ensuring our newest van got rolling this year to deliver art to thousands of children.

We are honored to have awarded Merry and Ralph the 2019 Patrons of the Art award for all they have done for arts and culture. Above is a picture from the evening’s celebration of Merry and Ralph accepting their award from NBAM Board Member Jane Duff-Gleason and Executive Director Ashley Occhino.

Through this fund, we can continue to provide crucial arts exposure to youth in our region through engagement and experiences. To learn more about Merry’s legacy and family, please read the announcement composed by her family.
