Summer Winds 2019
DATMA’s inaugural public event series was called, Summer Winds 2019—a celebration of New Bedford’s emerging leadership in wind energy. Alongside wind-themed international exhibitions and collaborative programs with partners from arts and culture, science, and technology, DATMA commissioned a site-specific signature Skynet Silver Current, by Patrick Shearn of Poetic Kinetics. Silver Current was installed over Custom House Square. You can still revisit the magic of Summer Winds by browsing some of our favorite images by searching #SummerWinds19 and #SilverCurrent in your social media accounts. Let us know you’re favorite by tagging @_DATMA.
There is still one Summer Winds exhibitions to been seen! Allow your curiosity to get the best of you and visit the Superflat Wall to see the mural, Winds of Change. It’s at the corner of Acushnet and Williams Street in downtown New Bedford
Help DATMA create the 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.
