Art in the Park 2021

After the success of our first Art in the Park event last year, “Bass in the Grass,” we are announcing our 2021 event, “Hyper Stripers.” Local artists and makers will paint or decorate large fish-shaped profiles that will be displayed outside at our outdoor event at Hale Farm in May and auctioned online.

– Local artists and makers will paint or decorate large fish-shaped profiles that will be displayed outside
– The art will be auctioned online with winning bid split evenly between the artists and Beverly Main Streets (we guarantee artists will be paid at least $100)
– This is a link to our “Bass in the Grass” online auction from 2020 to show you examples of the finished art

– Artists must complete the online application: March 16
– Artists will be notified if they have been selected by the jury: approximately March 23
– Stripers are available to pick up: approximately April 2 (tbd)
– Deadline to deliver completed Stripers to BMS: April 22
– Opening event outside at the Hale Farm: May 8, 9, 15
