Visual Voice: Portfolios from Pittsfield High School

Discover the work of 10 talented young artists as they present their AP portfolios online at explore.berkshiremuseum.org.

Jeff Rodgers, Executive Director of the Berkshire Museum, shared about the exciting partnership with Pittsfield High School that, "We are continually looking for new, creative ways we can serve our community, especially now, when live interactions are impossible. These talented young artists worked hard all year and their work deserved a platform. Virtual exhibitions have their limitations, but they also have their advantages; I encourage you to share this student work far and wide, so that everyone knows that the arts are alive in the Berkshires."
