We’re partnering with the New England Sculptors Association (NESA) to shine a light on sculpture as public art. The project is called BEVsculpts and our aim is to engage the community in a variety of ways to learn about, appreciate and experiment with sculpture. We’ve already hosted a lively presentation and discussion at the Senior Center by Historic Beverly on current and long-gone sculptures in Beverly, and we hosted a professional development day for the art teachers in the Beverly Public Schools to share ways they can work sculpture into their curriculums. Upcoming activities include a snow day sculpture build, a local sculptors exhibition and a community build where you’ll be able to contribute your own sculpture magic to a public art project.

Thanks in part to funding from the Beverly Cultural Council, we’re able to partner with Montserrat College of Art, Historic Beverly, Beverly Public Library, Endicott College, Council on Aging and Beverly Public Schools. We’re also working with a team of BHS DECA students who came in first place in their district competition with the BEVsculpts project!
On exhibit now thru 5/24 at Endicott College’s Manninen Center for the Arts: Ceramic Sculpture Culture: Uniting the Figure
Throughout history, artists from around the globe have used the figure to express their creative insights of the world around them. This is an exhibition that explores the contemporary ceramic figure through the eyes of nine talented emerging ceramic artists. Within this exhibition, artists utilize their own individual background, beliefs, and culture as a catalyst to explore themes of everyday life within our contemporary society.
