Situated in the main lobby of the Walter J. Manninen Center for the Arts, the Carol Grillo Art Gallery is a public gallery that provides students, faculty, guests, the Endicott and North Shore communities an opportunity to view works by local artists, students, and faculty.
The gallery was donated by Robert and Carol Amos Grillo, members of the class of 1955. Exhibitions have included artists from Beverly Arts Fest, Express Yourself, Inc., the annual Student Invitational Exhibit, and the Senior Thesis Exhibit. Also presented periodically are special mural projects by guest artists. The mission of this gallery is to provide space for faculty, students, and the broader communities, for juried exhibitions, group shows, and receptions, while enhancing the quality of life for all to study, enjoy, and to educate. This gallery is free and open to the public.
