Overview

The 10th Annual Beverly Art Walk is a celebration of art and music, showcasing a diverse array of unique cultural assets, local businesses, artists’ home studios, and art environments across Beverly and Morgan Park.

The free, family-friendly event features more than 200 artists in nearly 40 venues; the popular Uprising Craft Market; and the Family Fun Park at Sutherland School in conjunction with their I Madonnari Street Painting Festival. Public art activations and live music will also be featured at locations all over Beverly/Morgan Park. ​

Please note the Beverly Art Walk is organized by The Beverly Area Arts Alliance, also referred to as The Alliance—and not the Beverly Arts Center. It’s important to call this out to avoid confusion among attendees and participants.

The Alliance website, which offers an online guide to the Beverly Art Walk, is  https://beverlyarts.org.
