NBAM Annual Garden Party Appeal


Dear NBAM Friend,



It’s summertime again, and as much as we at the New Bedford Art Museum/ArtWorks! look forward to our annual Garden Party, we chose to postpone until next year as we work to build back our full staff.


NBAM/ArtWorks! Garden Party Appeal is a very important source of funding, with all proceeds helping to fund exhibitions and our youth and adult educational programming. We need your support to help fill the gaps in covering all of the programs we are planning to undertake in the coming months, as well as those we are currently running.


We’d like to tell you about some of the highlights that have been happening with YOUR amazing support:


Funding from the Mass Cultural Council grants will support the next phase of the Expansion Project and ongoing educational programming.


Serving a greater number of vulnerable seniors and underserved youth through our artMOBILE and education programs.


Participating in New Bedford Creative’s Creating Connection, enabling more impactful community outreach and creative opportunities.


Establishing a dedicated gallery and exhibit space for our greater community of “makers” titled The Peoples Gallery, with an inclusive structure, and user-friendly accessibility.


Being awarded funding from the Mass Cultural Council to support the next phase of the Expansion Project and ongoing educational programming.


We at NBAM/ArtWorks! are constantly growing and dedicating our efforts in expanding our mission as a vital resource for arts and culture in the New Bedford community and beyond.


Please consider supporting us and watch your generosity flourish by donating to our Garden Party Appeal or becoming a sustaining member.



Every donation makes a difference, and we truly appreciate your support!
