Seaport Art Walk
The New Bedford Seaport Art Walk unites two of the city’s nationally recognized cultural and commercial assets, its working waterfront and its working artists. It is the first large format outdoor public art installation along the waterfront in the city. Each summer, sculptures are temporarily installed along MacArthur Blvd, City Pier, State Pier, and the Seaport Cultural District downtown.
This year’s theme – “WIND” – to coincide with the Massachusetts Design Art & Technology Institute (DATMA) launching their first large-scale public art installation alongside collaborations with local arts and cultural organizations for the series Summer Winds.
