“Nearly one hundred years after Norman Rockwell, at age 18, accepted his first art commission, his namesake Museum pays tribute to the creativity of youth by presenting our 25th Annual Berkshire County High School Art Show. The creativity of Berkshire County’s high school students and their teachers is clearly evident in the works on view—from abstraction to realism and three-dimensional assemblages, every possible approach to art is explored in this vibrant installation.” —Stephanie Haboush Plunkett, Deputy Director/Chief Curator, Norman Rockwell Museum
Meet the next generation of artists! A lively and diverse exhibition of original works by Berkshire County high school art students, celebrating the region’s talented youth.
An annual tradition, Berkshire County high school students submit original works to the High School Art Show in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, mixed media, and sculpture. The young artists learn how to prepare their work for a gallery show, acquire a personal understanding of the exhibition process, and have the opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional museum setting.
With over 112 original works from 13 schools on display, participating schools in the 25th Annual Berkshire County High School Art Show include: BArT Charter School, Berkshire School, Drury High School, John Dewey Academy, Lenox Memorial High School, Miss Hall’s School, Monument Mountain Regional High School, Mount Everett Regional High School, Mount Greylock Regional High School, Pittsfield High School, St. Joseph Central High School, Taconic High School, and Wahconah Regional High School. The exhibition is generously sponsored by Legacy Banks.
