New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center remains closed to the public this month while we work on the installation of our new, permanent exhibit, More than a Job: Work and Community in New Bedford’s Fishing Industry. This exhibit will feature a replica working deck, scallop dredge, galley table, bunks, historic images and footage, and more than sixty audio clips sharing the many voices of the fishing community. The new exhibit will provide visitors with an introduction to the workings of the fishing industry as well as explore themes including labor history, immigration, sustainability, and the changing nature of work and community.
Join us on Thurs., 2/11, at 7 p.m. for a virtual sneak peek of this brand new, permanent exhibit! Learn about what goes on behind the scenes when planning an exhibit and see previews of some of the new exhibit elements. Tune in to the Exhibit Preview on ZOOM at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81116053482#success. Free and open to the public.
