SUPERFLAT NB is a culture-based, artist led, and neighborhood-driven community revitalization mural art project. It seeks to beautify New Bedford neighborhoods while flattening barriers to the arts.

SUPERFLAT

is inspired by artist Takashi Murakami, who coined the term to express spatial compression and the blending of high and low art in his own work. SUPERFLAT NB aims to eliminate barriers to the arts through public art that tells and shares personal stories; that draws upon, preserves, and reimagines our shared heritage and histories in New Bedford; and through the renewal of the environment and our connections to each other, creates new pathways for our future social and economic growth.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

We’re amazed at the array of rich cultural offerings and artistic resources that New Bedford provides. We’re also amazed that more people don’t know about or access them. We want to flatten those barriers and connect those resources to the local community by giving local, national, and international artists a role in the fabric of the city, and connect the city, its artists and its youth to local, national, and international resources and opportunities.
