Visual Arts

The Berkshires has a long history of cultural sophistication. Artists began flocking here in the early 19th century, and by mid-century, the tradition of a Berkshire cultural bounty had taken hold. The Diversity of mediums and styles displayed amongst the many museums is enviable to other culture rich communities. From the extensive Impressionist collection at the Clark Art Institute and eclectic installations at Mass MoCA, to the nostalgic illustrations of Norman Rockwell, the Berkshires has earned its bragging rights as Cultural Mecca of the north east.
