BevArt Artist Survey
Miranda’s Hearth is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to building community through creativity that is approachable, affordable and accessible. After serving 25,000 people through creative programming since 2013, Miranda’s Hearth is currently putting together a proposal to repurpose Briscoe Middle School in Beverly, MA as BevArt: The Beverly Arts Community Center.

BevArt would include private creative work spaces, shared creative workspaces, community art programming, and access to community spaces including the auditorium, hallways, lobby, and gym. Our goal is to develop sustainable infrastructure to support professional artists, provide a pathway to the arts for the broader community, and highlight local artists to tourists visiting Beverly.

Briscoe Middle School is a 144,000 square foot building with 75,000 square feet of rentable studio space. It is 1.5 miles from Route 128 and 1 mile from the Beverly Depot and Montserrat Train Stations and the beach. Currently, we project renting space at $12 per square foot per year. This amount covers the operational of the building as well as important, on-going capital improvements to secure the building’s longevity.

The purpose of this survey is to identify artists in Beverly, the North Shore, and the Greater Boston area who would be interested in potentially renting space at BevArt. The building has been voted surplus by the City of Beverly and will go through a public Request for Proposals Process.

How would you use the space?
What media do you work in?
What kind of space would you be interested in renting? (Check all that apply)
What amount of space and cost per month are you interested in renting?
Our projected rent is $12 per square foot per year. The numbers above are based on taking the square footage, multiplying by $12 for the full annual amount, and dividing by 12 for the monthly rent.

Ex. 200 square feet X $12 per square foot per year = $2,400 annually or $200 per month.
