Art: Public Art Downstreet
On the side of an underpass, an Egyptian god spreads wide wings against a turquoise sky. On a college lawn, giant eyes glow in the dark. Color and form overflow in public art in parks, on quads, in gardens and even on the sidewalks.
- Works of art from the Williams College Museum of Art appear across the college campus. Walking casually across the lawn, you can encounter sculptures and installations by Louise Bourgeois, George Rickey and Jenny Holzer, among others.
- Field Farm in South Williamstown is New England’s youngest house museum — a Modernist house and folly with a Modernist art collection. Sculptures appear in the gardens overlooking mountain fields and four miles of trails across 300 acres of woods and meadows.
- Street art extends into the crosswalks in North Adams, and murals splash across brick walls here, created as part of Downstreet Art’s summer festivals.
The MCLA Berkshire Cultural Resource Center hosts a monthly downtown celebration on the last Thursday of each month from May to October with popup galleries and live performers to celebrate art openings across town.
Public art works on the Williams College campus by George Rickey, Jenny Holzer, and others, around the Williams College campus.
At Field Farm, the family of Williams College alum Lawrence Bloedel collected outdoor sculpture and Modernist artwork. Sculpture by Arline Shulman, Elbert Weinberg, Jack Zajac and others overlooks the gardens and high meadows.
