Occasional Visitor Series presents The Berlin Mural, a documentary film by Kaleb Hart, 2011 graduate of Plymouth State University.

Once the capital of paper production, Berlin, New Hampshire was home to an ethnically diverse community. At it's center, was Brown Pulp and Paper Company, one of the most
successful pulp and paper companies in the early twentieth century. The company's research and development buildings were at the forefront of technological advancement in the pulp and paper industry and claimed over 700 patents.

Unfortunately, with the closing of the mills, the R&D buildings have decayed over the past decades, and the goal of the mural project was to create some excitement for the preservation of the R&D buildings, headed by the Northern Forest Heritage Park in Berlin.

Through stunning photographs, archival film footage and documentary coverage of the mural painting process, The Berlin Mural tells the story of the community's rich cultural and industrial history as twelve art students from Plymouth State University
paint a special mural celebrating the diverse community of Berlin and the successes of the Brown Paper R&D buildings.

The mural initiative was a special collaboration between Plymouth State University's Center for Rural Partnerships, the Northern Forest Heritage Park in Berlin, NH, Tri-County Community Action Program and Plymouth State Art Department.
