Views to the Harbor
Exhibition Dates: September 26th, 2011 – June 2012
The Museum’s Davis Observation Deck provides one of the best views in New Bedford – a view in which the city’s current and historic maritime heritage plays out before you, a living portrait of the city’s economic engine. What better place, then, to explore historic views of the harbor and its activities? The exhibition included well-knowns such as William Allen Wall, Charles Henry Gifford, and Clifford Ashley as well as some less familiar artist such as Francisco Rapoza, and Theodosia Potter Chase.
