THE CABOT MURALS PROJECT
As the gateway and an anchor of the Beverly Arts District, The historic Cabot Theater is well-positioned to feature an impactful public art installation that embodies the unique spirit of Beverly; honoring both its tradition and innovative spirit. In summer of 2019 and as an extension of our street art Festival, Beyond Walls will partner with The Cabot to install murals on its exterior walls. These murals will magnify the eclectic arts community in Downtown Beverly and inspire additional public art installations throughout the city and beyond.
Together, with funding from the Essex County Community Foundation Creative County Initiative, we aim to create a mural installation that reflects The Cabot’s past, present, and future, while remaining fully encapsulated in its exciting present course as a vibrant performing arts center which presents world-class films and live performances in the beautiful historic theater. By involving the community in the planning process, we will ensure these murals best reflect the people of Beverly, as well as The Cabot’s rich history as a performing arts venue.
