With a professional background in museum management and a love of arts and crafts — she’s an artist herself, and operates a metalsmithing studio in an old fiber mill — Lindsay Mis is charged with exploring the overlap of art, technology and public engagement as Executive Director of the Massachusetts Design Art & Technology Institute, New Bedford’s innovative arts organization founded in 2016, otherwise known as DATMA.
The non-collecting museum presents public artworks, exhibits and workshops that contribute to the cultural life in the South Coast region and beyond, and Mis uses her imagination to expertly facilitate collaboration between artists, organizations, legislators and the general public.
Beginning July 1 and running until Sept. 30, look for Summer Winds 2019 inaugural season, a collaborative of exhibitions, programs and initiatives in partnership with over 20 local organizations.
