BEVERLY AREA ARTS ALLIANCE
The Alt Walk and ongoing Pandemograms have ensured that BH and the surrounding communities have access to the many talented artists in our midst despite an ongoing pandemic. Thank you for your commitment to the efforts and ideals that raise our cultural bar. Please visit www.beverlyarts.org for information on additional programs and how you can be part of their outreach.
ARTIST ELAINE MILLER
We were fortunate to have been selected by the Arts Alliance to showcase the work of artist Elaine Miller during the Alt Walk. That in turn led to a collaboration in support of the voter turn-out effort with her original artwork lining our street and being raffled off through our shop. Thank you, Elaine, for your art work and for your community advocacy. This is a better place because you are in it.
