(NOT) Business as Usual was an exhibition organized by City College students in December 2019 to protest the sudden cancelling of 300 classes. Its purpose was to call attention to the class cuts and bring about change. While ultimately some classes were restored and Chancellor Mark Rocha was fired, the City College art program has continued to be systematically dismantled. In May 2020 the Fort Mason campus was shuttered, a huge loss for the community.
Beverly contributed three paintings, two sculptures and a visitor engagement piece.
