2021 Schedule

 

Dear Beechwood Friends,


In 2011, we discovered this beautiful 1806 property and immediately had the idea to share this space with artists, performers, musicians, filmmakers, tech mavens and chefs, along with curious, enthusiastic, open-minded arts lovers and supporters. We had in mind a nod to the Parisian salons of the past, but with an eye toward the future arts experience.


Looking back, it was a crazy idea, and many people said it wouldn't work. Yet we persisted - and were game for whatever evolved! We re-named our 501(c)3 Beechwood Arts & Innovation after the 400 yr old Copper Beech that is the soul of this place. We opened to the public before we even had chairs to seat an audience! And from our very first event, people came. We decided to let the diverse community to shape our direction, and we could not be more inspired by what they created and the tapestry we wove.


Our focus was to bring all the arts together in an Intimate, Immersive and Innovative way to create Collaboration, Connection, Conversation & Community. In all, we've hosted more than 100 all-arts, immersive events across 40 seasons, shown thousands of pieces of artwork from hundreds of artists, had world-class performances, including world premieres, and many world-wide innovative firsts, all exploring meaningful themes through the arts: Resilience, Fate, Secrets, Giving Voice, Heart-Mind-Body, Transformation, On Being Fired Up, Extreme Collaboration, Open Mind, Journeys, Unity, Mentorship and many more.


Thank you for being part of the Beechwood Community and helping reveal the many treasures that lay in uncharted waters! In 2021, we celebrate these past 10 years and create a bridge to the next 10. If you haven't been here yet, we're waiting to welcome you!
