New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center’s upcoming gallery exhibits will tell stories of immigration and cultural heritage in New Bedford and the fishing industry. We are interested in photographs, objects, or documents that tell stories of what life and work was like in your country of origin, what brought you to New Bedford, and what it was like to immigrate to this area. Bring any photographs, documents, or objects related to these topics to be scanned and documented by Fishing Heritage Center staff and volunteers. These items will help us tell a more complete story of immigration and cultural heritage in New Bedford’s working waterfront.
These upcoming exhibits will be will be supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Creative Commonwealth Initiative.
