Located in downtown Pittsfield, Massachusetts, the Berkshire Museum has been a Smithsonian Affiliate since 2013. Established in 1903, the Berkshire Museum integrates art, history, and natural science in a wide range of programs and exhibitions that inspire educational connections between the disciplines.
The new exhibition If/Then opens this Saturday, January 24 at the Berkshire Museum. Visitors to If/Then will enter a topsy-turvy world of experience, where senses rule. They will traverse the horizontal climbing wall; dodge an obstacle course of pretend laser beams; and use dots and dashes to mark their height on a drawing wall.
If/Then was conceived and created by Peter Garlington, a Berkshire-based designer, and Craig Langlois, Berkshire Museum’s education and public program manager. Craig joins us now along with Lesley Ann Beck, Director of Communications at Berkshire Museum.
