The artMOBILE program is designed with the objective of bringing free art activities to underserved city youth during the summer. artMOBILE has successfully delivered summer art activities in a safe environment since 1995 to more than 10,000 city youth.
Operating like a book-mobile, the artMOBILE delivers art activities to youth who would otherwise not be able to participate in high-quality art projects. A vividly painted former school bus, “the Purple Bus” and a similarly painted Dodge minivan allows NBAM to offer the artMOBILE program free at 20 scheduled community sites for 8 weeks each summer.
A tax-deductible donation of $50 covers the cost of one child to visit the artMOBILE for the whole summer! Kids participating in artMOBILE are off the streets and out of trouble during the times of highest crime and are provided with a supervised, instructional and fun activity all summer long. artMOBILE allows the youth of New Bedford to participate in NBAM’s mission of engaging the public in experiencing, understanding and appreciating art!
