*With the local political season in full swing this small exhibition displays ephemera from local political campaigns including pins, postcards, bumper stickers and brochures that illustrate the marketing and branding acumen of political campaigns in Beverly. These provocative objects illustrate the many forms of political persuasion that have been used in Beverly over the past century, providing a window into ways in which the means of mass communication was used to reach voters and how is has changed over time.
