Seaport Art Walk

2017 Sustainable Oceans

The New Bedford working waterfront will be transformed with eighteen original sculpture created by local artists, temporarily installed along MacArthur Blvd, the City and State piers, and in the city’s Seaport Cultural District. This year’s theme – “Sustainable Oceans”; aims to bring awareness to the problems and solutions, globally, in our oceans and waterways. NEW for this year, a lecture series that pairs scholars and artists to discuss topics that inspired the pieces!



Here’s a glimpse of what you can see along New Bedford’s working waterfront this summer:
