It’s been a long year for the Berkshire Museum as it continues to handle the fallout of its controversial art sale. Intended to raise funds for an endowment and a restructuring of the institution toward interactive, experience-based exhibitions, the sale led to international protest and lawsuits. This week, WAMC checked in with Craig Langlois, the museum’s Chief Experience Officer. A 10-year employee of the Pittsfield institution, he oversees exhibitions, collections, programming, and education for the Berkshire Museum.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
