For Artweek, join us for special tours of the Seaport Art Walk which transforms the New Bedford working waterfront with original sculptures created by local artists. Ten to twenty sculptures are temporarily installed in the city’s Seaport Cultural District and tours will be led by artists featured in the Seaport Art Walk. The first tour will begin at 1:00 PM and the second tour will begin at 3:00 PM. Tours last about an hour. Please meet promptly at City Pier 3, Waterfront Visitor Center, 52 Fisherman's Wharf, to meet your guide. This year’s theme – “Cultural Aspects,” encouraged artists’ unique interpretation and connection with the diversity of New Bedford. The self-guided Art Walk highlights the importance of the arts and creates an inviting waterfront. The 2nd Annual Seaport Art Walk Brochure & Map can be downloaded here http://destinationnewbedford.org/seaport-art-walk/ or pick one up at the Waterfront Visitor's Center, Pier 3 Fisherman's Wharf, New Bedford, MA 02740.
