The New Bedford Art Museum/Artworks is eyeing two projects in its immediate future.  It's asking for community support to keep the Artmobile on the road.

The Artmobile is on the road during the months of July and August, bringing the joy of art to youngsters at 20 community sites in New Bedford. The Art Museum is hoping to raise $10,000 by December 1 to replace a 1995 van, and keep the Artmobile on the road.

Museum Director Ashley Occhino visits Townsquare Sunday this week to update the fund-raising drive, and to outline plans to renovate the second floor of the museum building into a permanent exhibition space for the City of New Bedford's Art Collection.

Townsquare Sunday airs every Sunday at 6 a.m. on 1420 WBSM. The program highlights organizations and individuals working to improve the quality of life on the SouthCoast. Interview segments can also be heard on, the WBSM app, and on WBSM TV on YouTube.
