Our 2019 Mural Project

Why are we doing this project?

As the gateway and an anchor of the Beverly Arts District, The Cabot 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, in partnership with Beyond Walls, The Cabot will install world-class 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.

We aim to create a mural installation that reflects The Cabot’s past, present, and future, while remaining fully encapsulated in our exciting present course as a vibrant performing arts center which presents world-class films and live performances in our 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.
