Adams Theater sponsored two performances on stage during its first Community Open House at the all-day Susan B. Anthony Festival in downtown Adams. Berkshire Dance Theater presented students and faculty works at 2:30 pm, and Sheryl Faye performed the life story of Susan B. Anthony at 5 pm. Both storefront spaces were configured for community engagement events, including a video installation, an art exhibition with vintage ticket stubs, and a pop-up souvenir shop. Over 300 people visited Adams Theater and attended the performances.
Adams-based artist Alvin Ouellet created this gorgeous collage outside of Adams Theater based on the Susan B Anthony Festival on Park Street, capturing the spirit of the day when hundreds of community members gathered downtown for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.
