The American Story can refer to many things, including the history of the United States, the values and ideals that define the country, and the stories of its people. Beverly: An American Story should serve as a unifying force for Beverly residents by providing a shared narrative and identity through stories from our city’s history. It can inspire people to work together to achieve common goals, overcome challenges, and understand their place in the world and their role in shaping the future.
On view until June 1
Historic Beverly’s Community Art Show is back for its 6th year and the theme for this year is the “Colors of Beverly”. This juried art show draws over 40 local artists who submit over 60 works of art from pastels and drawing to paintings and photography, and consistently opens to rave reviews.
These are stories of citizens, black and white, battling against the unjust system of slavery; of enslaved men fighting for freedom for our nation, though not free themselves; of a woman using the law to emancipate her family; and of the racism that affected Beverly’s black population, long after they were freed from bondage.
