NBWM Bravas On The Savoie

“Immigrants Bravas on the Savoie,” a reproduction from a 1914 glass plate negative, is part of the exhibit “A City of Immigrants: The Standard Times Collection,” on view outside the New Bedford Whaling Museum through September 5.

The New Bedford Whaling Museum is sharing samples of some of its gallery exhibitions outside on its plaza at the corner of Johnny Cake Hill and William Street in New Bedford.

The five-part series called “Inside Out!” launched on August 6 and will run through October 15, with a new exhibition starting every two weeks. A curator talk is scheduled for each of the five exhibitions. “Inside Out!” is on display daily, Monday through Sunday, free of charge. The Whaling Museum galleries are open Thursday through Sunday from 10 AM to 4 PM.

“A City of Immigrants: The Standard Times Collection” will run August 20 through September 5 as part of “Inside Out!” The photographs capture turn-of-the-century communities and individuals in Greater New Bedford.

Immigration shaped the landscape, culture, cuisine and character of New Bedford. The images tell the stories of Polish, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Irish, Italian, Cape Verdean, Portuguese, Jewish, Greek and other immigrant communities in the early 20th century.

“A Moment in Time,” showcasing images from the museum’s photo archives, will run from September 3 to 16. Each image has characteristics that identify it as being from a specific time period. Viewers will be invited to guess the year each photograph was taken.
