“Art is nothing new in New Bedford. What’s new, especially in visual art, is exhibiting artists with star power.”

Cait McQuaid, Boston Globe Contributor


DATMA presents art in public spaces made by artists of all mediums – from all over the world – at all levels of their career. We accept resumes and portfolios throughout the year that are reviewed on an annual basis by our Program Committee.

Before you email us a general submission, we ask that you click around our website, review our Projects Page, and sign up for our enews so you can better understand the type of projects we produce.  We hope to hear from you via email: [email protected]

Help DATMA create our next project!

Because we are an institute without walls, we don’t get to greet you by a door or hear your thoughts about the artwork we present. We want to hear from you! Tell us a bit about the art that inspires you. What artwork should DATMA present next? Where should art live? These are conversations we wish we could have with you if we met you at one of our projects. CLICK HERE to share your comments and ideas with DATMA’s Program Committee. Your feedback will help shape our upcoming exhibitions.
