The New Bedford artmobile is celebrating its 25th year in 2020.

“Operating much like a bookmobile, the two purple vans, each with two experienced art educators, engage children with fun educational art activities at community sites across New Bedford for seven weeks each July and August.”

Free art activities will be available for kids in the Greater New Bedford area thanks to the New Bedford Art Museum.
