A week in the Berkshires

We enjoyed a drive through the green hills of New York state to get to our destination in. pittsfield Massachusetts . Patience was a virtue as I was on an elderhostal (now called road scholars) tour with my parents. I looked forward to spending some time together this week enjoying the arts. There are lectures and speakers included in the event we will see .

The town of Williamstown is the home of the Williams. College where the Clark museum and Williams. College Museum was located. Many church buildings of all shapes and sizes were passed on the way. Most very small and sometimes 3 or 4 next to one another. They are beautiful but wonder if they are spiritually full.

The Williams College Museum was small but had some nice pieces. One of the student projects filled a room of constructed architecture.buildings based on an artist. They even had the lesson plan displayed. Maybe a future project.

There was a nice Louise nevelson piece and a Greek vase I enjoyed. Some outdoor sculptures of eyeballs were fun to photograph.

The special exhibit At the Clark Museum was my fav. Clark had led an expedition to china and unearthed some burial sites. They had reconstructed sculptures and
objects of discovery.

There was a brand new annex with a walking trail through the woods. I loved the architecture to the. Building. The special exhibit continued there. I rode a golf cart with my dad to get there.

Student projects

We ended the evening with a new drama called the North Pool. This was excellently acted and the story proved much to talk about afterwards with the actors. A mystery that craft fully unfolded as the play progressed.
