The 2020 Seaport Art Walk officially opens in New Bedford this year with a special online video premiere of the project, which in real life is presented along the city’s waterfront in the Seaport Cultural District.
Viewers are invited to meet the artists and get a behind-scenes look into the creation and installation of their artwork on Thursday, Aug. 13 at 6:00 p.m. during AHA! New Bedford. You can watch the video on New Bedford Creative’s Facebook page Facebook.com/NewBedfordCreative. Thereafter, the public art will remain on exhibit through October and patrons are invited to visit the waterfront and view the work at their leisure abiding by social distancing and mask wearing guidance.
The theme of this year’s annual Seaport Art Walk is “Lighting the Way: Historic Women of the SouthCoast.” It is adapted from, and in collaboration with, the New Bedford Whaling Museum’s “Lighting the Way” project. Launched in 2018, “Lighting the Way: Historic Women of SouthCoast” explores the historical impact of women from the region.
