Summer Winds 2019

DATMA’s inaugural public events took place as part of 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, the site-specific signature Skynet Silver Current, recently installed over Custom House Square is now closed. See some of our favorite images by searching #SummerWinds in your social media accounts.

There are two Summer Winds exhibitions remaining. Allow your curiosity to get the best of you and visit NB Whaling Museum and NB Art Museum/ArtWorks!. Their exhibition info is just  below.
