Beverly Cultural Council Announces 2014 Grant Winners

Residents in Beverly can look forward to a year of unique concerts, new public murals, live theatre, and a variety of special events for all ages, thanks in part to grants provided by the Beverly Cultural Council (BCC).

Almost twenty artists or groups representing a wide range of the arts received grants from the BCC, totaling $11,165. With support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the BCC funds will provide school children unique educational opportunities, seniors with creative workshops and the general public with numerous cultural activities. Each fulfills BCC’s priorities: to provide more programs for children, families and seniors.

“We are thrilled to fund so many quality projects and programs that will enhance Beverly and our growing reputation as a vibrant arts community,” said (Montserrat alumna) Bea Modisett, BCC chair.

All of the artistic projects or events will take place in Beverly. Some are free and open to the public, while others are tailored for specific audiences at community centers. Many grant recipients reside in Beverly.

“The arts play such a vital role in our community,” said Modisett. “We’re excited about each of this year’s recipients as they’ll contribute great things to Beverly. And we’re already thinking of next year’s grant cycle, inviting anyone with a strong idea—from an individual artist to a collaborative group—to apply!”

The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year.
