“DATMA produces dynamic programs that project what the SouthCoast is and has been—and what it can become.”

Roger Mandle, DATMA’s Co-Founder


Lindsay Miś

Lindsay Miś has a passion for working with artists and making an impact in her community with public art. A longtime New Bedford artist, Miś has been Executive Director of DATMA since 2018 and launched it’s inaugural program season entitled, Summer Winds. She has also worked at peer art institutions such as Society of Arts & Crafts in Boston, New Bedford Art Museum, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Ise, ME, and the Visual Art Center of Richmond, VA. Miś received her MFA in Jewelry/Metals from UMass Dartmouth and her BFA in Craft/Material Studies from VCU. She maintains her metalsmithing practice at Hatch Street Studios. Lindsay represents DATMA on the AHA! Steering Committee, the Greater New Bedford Youth Alliance (GNBYA) Data Committee, and the Fall River Arts & Culture Council, FRACC. One motive that keeps her in the SouthCoast is region’s incredible ability to collaborate.

“My passion for craft has influenced my curiosity of how we experience art & design in the objects and places around us. I pursue this question in DATMA’s approach to exhibitions- making our projects accessible to all and part of the every day.”
