About the Council


The Amesbury Cultural Council is a group of local volunteers, appointed by the Mayor, who come from all walks of life to help promote and facilitate cultural activities and the arts in Amesbury.



The Council oversees the distribution of Massachusetts Cultural Council grants, organizes the annual Amesbury Open Studio Tour, supports and promotes public art projects and events throughout the town and is the custodian of the extensive Chain Bridge art collection.
