There's a unique and very cool event happening locally that you should participate in! Are you an artist or an arts supporter? Then you're encouraged to turn out on Thursday, Oct 22 for a local mass photo shoot!

The event is called Face Forward: AHA! New Bedford and the New Bedford Open Studios are asking every artist who calls the city home to gather in Custom House Square Park at 5 pm on October 22 for one amazing group photo to help celebrate MASSCreative's ART MATTERS day! And this first time event will be captured by nationally recognized, award winning photographer, Peter Pereira, of the Standard-Times! The next day, friday, October 23, the photos will be shared at #Artsmatter in #New Bedford #Masscreative. And to add a personal touch, bring your artwork if you like, or just be a work of art! For more information contact Steven Froias, New Bedford Open Studios co-chair at Look at their Facebook page at New Bedford Open Studios.
