The Berlin Mural

YouTube Preview Image
Once the capital of paper production, Berlin, New Hampshire, was home to an ethnically diverse community. At its center, was Brown Pulp and Paper Company, one of the most successful pulp and paper companies in the early 20th century. The company’s research and development buildings were at the forefront of technological advancement in the pulp and paper industry and claimed more than 700 patents.
Through stunning photographs, archival footage, and documentary coverage of the mural painting process, The Berlin Mural, a film by Kaleb Hart ’11, tells the story of the community’s rich cultural and industrial history as 12 Plymouth State University art students paint a special mural celebrating the diverse community of Berlin and the successes of the Brown Paper R&D buildings.

The Center for Rural Partnerships is proud to present The Berlin Mural in its first Occasional Visitor Series event. Click here to view the film’s trailer.

The showings are free and open to the public.
