A Series of Rotating Outdoor Exhibitions
Opened: August 6, 2020
Closed: October 15, 2020
The New Bedford Whaling Museum ignites learning through explorations of art, history, science, and culture rooted in the stories of people, the region, and an international seaport.
Our galleries have been host to many dynamic exhibitions throughout the years and we have been honored to share our Collections and the stories they tell with visitors from near and far.
In this outdoor exhibition series, we aimed to bring you a selection of photographs representing a sampling of the stories presented within our walls. While the Museum campus, at the time, was open Wednesdays through Sundays, and we encouraged you to come inside, this free series was available every day for all to enjoy outside.
With each two-week exhibition, we hosted a virtual talk with the curator.
Inside Out! Youth Voices for the Ocean
August 6 – August 19, 2020
These powerful pieces by young artists expose what is happening to our ocean; reflect on what it means to be a human in the 21st century; discover and advocate for solutions on personal and planetary scales; and inspire a culture of respect and action for all life on this blue planet.
Inside Out! A Moment in Time
September 3 – September 16, 2020
This exhibition showcased a selection of photographs from the Whaling Museum’s photo archive. Many of the photos were from the Prescott collection, which show moments in time that were memorable and important to the Prescott family.
