Groundbreaking art exhibitions ask visitors to look at works of art with fresh eyes. Discover old and new masters and emerging artists with promise. This is the beauty of the visual arts in the northern Berkshires.
- Acres of wall drawings by Sol Lewitt, Virtual reality by Laurie Anderson, An Airstream space bus crash-landed on the roof, Giant banjos to play, Contemporary art surprises at Mass MoCA.
- Curators at the Clark Art Institute combine deep scholarship with a sense of color and story, bringing Impressionist Paris to life.
- Art exhibits at the Williams College Museum of Art bring in national or international artists and look squarely at difficult questions of today.
- Young curators and artists experiment with joy at MCLA’s Gallery 51, the Eclipse Mill Gallery, and in the streets of North Adams.
- Most exhibits are temporarily closed due to COVID-19. They remain listed here to remind us of the Berkshire’s cultural wealth. Institutions are working hard to make it through this challenging time. Please consider a membership or donation to your favorite venues.
