New Bedford Gets Music and Art in the Park
If you are sick of hearing your family complain they are bored this summer then you have to check out what New Bedford Creative has been up to.
The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra has teamed up with the New Bedford Art Museum for a fun and educational experience that is taking place at the New Bedford parks and is free to the public.
The next experience is going to take place at the Buttonwood Park Zoo this Friday, July 31 from 10 a.m. to noon.
You can hear local musical talent and curate your own piece of art with a customized art kit. It's truly an opportunity to get out while practicing social distancing and doing something different.
Ashley Occhino from the New Bedford Art Museum and the artMOBILE has been working hard to get this up and going, and she told me that there has been a steady flow of cars that came to their Brooklawn Park.
The hope is that temperatures lower a little come Friday so that kids can get down to the park, practice social distancing and create art using their kits right on the grass while enjoying the amazing sounds that a member of the New Bedford Orchestra will provide.
But if it is a little too hot or the kids get a little too distracted, the pre-made art kits can be taken home so that kids can create in the comfort of their homes.
The theme of both the art and the music is following the flight of a bird. The best part of all of this, it's free.
The New Bedford Art Museum sends out the artMOBILE often with free opportunities every week. Check out the full schedule for more info.
