Bass in the Grass

Place your online bids here!

We are beyond excited to announce our inaugural Art in the Park event, called “Bass in the Grass.” Local artists are painting 31 large bass-shaped profiles. The Bass will be auctioned online, with the winning bid split between the artist and Beverly Main Streets. This project has been planned with safety and social distancing, artist support and downtown business support as our priorities.

Ways you can enjoy “Bass in the Grass”

– After our event at Hale Farm, the Bass will be on display outside downtown businesses until September 18. We’ll have an online map for you to see where the Bass are swimming. Each Bass will have a sign with details on the artist and sponsor so you can make note of your favorites.

– View the Bass and bid online! The secure online auction will be held August 15 – September 18. This is your chance to own original art and support a local artist. The auction can track your favorites and even auto-bid for you, so check it out. https://www.biddingforgood.com/beverlymainstreets

 

Thank you to our generous sponsors and talented artists!
