Water 2021 Recap

From ocean waves to sounds waves.

This summer, for its 3rd year, DATMA will launch 3 free public art exhibitions plus numerous programs and initiatives with over 15 partners in New Bedford, kicking off June 17 through mid-October called “WATER 2021”. These public art programs will examine the role of water and women working with water within the histories, economies, and cultures of the UK, South Korea, Switzerland, and Southcoast MA. 4 internationally known artists – Hyung S. Kim, Phil Mello, Craig Easton, and Zimoun – have been invited by DATMA to present work for “WATER 2021”. Intended for all ages to be engaged, all exhibitions and program activities are designed for both a physical and virtual level of participation to account for safety measures during the Covid-19 pandemic. The entire “WATER 2021” program series is free and open to the public.
