The Northampton Arts Council is a city board and a non-profit organization whose goal is to support and promote the arts in Northampton. Originally created as a Local Arts Lottery Council, it began its work by administering a grants program in which proceeds from a state lottery are distributed to local artists, arts groups, and public schools.

Pittsfield Paintbox Program Announced

Pittsfield Paintbox Program Announced

Pittsfield Artscape has announced a partnership with Berkshire Money Management to bring more public art to the downtown with the Pittsfield Paintbox Program.

The Pittsfield Paintbox Program will bring intriguing and vibrant paintings to the streets' utility boxes (load centers). Artists will transform the typically drab electrical boxes, increasing the vibrancy of the artful streetscape. It will celebrate local artists, enliven the streetscape, and discourage vandalism of utility boxes throughout the downtown.

For the inaugural year, eight Paintbox designs will be installed in the downtown corridor from the Berkshire Museum to Persip Park; see map below.

Further support is provided by the Pittsfield Cultural Council, the City of Pittsfield Office of Cultural Development, Downtown Pittsfield, Inc., and the Berkshire Museum.
