WEST NEWBURY — The Pentucket Arts Foundation’s board of directors announced this week that its public art film “Voices of West Newbury” is now available online for public viewing.

The film was shown at Old Town Hall as part of the “Past is Prologue” multimedia art exhibit during Bicentennial Week in July.

Directed by award-winning videographer Kevin Bowe of Maple Street, the film features local residents reflecting on the history and lore of West Newbury.

Captured in the 30-minute piece is funny, informative and poignant commentary by Kevin Anderson, Sandy Berkenbush, Paul Christofferson, Dick Cushing, Michael Dwyer, Peg Duchemin, Chuck Fowler, Kate and Kay Gove, Barbara Haack, Zella Haskell, John McGrath and Rick Thurlow.

The film was made possible through the foundation’s Arts Connecting Community Public Art Grant in collaboration with GAR Memorial Library and the West Newbury Council on Aging, with support from Haverhill and Pentucket banks.

Applications for the next grant cycle will be available in January.

The Pentucket Arts Foundation’s mission is “to use the transformative power of the fine and performing arts to help make the tri-town Pentucket region a more vibrant and creative place in which to live, work, learn and be inspired.”
