Tales Of Immigration Woven With Art
A multi-media performance "Finding Home: We Are Stories" featuring works of arts, memoirs and immigrant stories of those who settled in The Berkshires will be shown at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts center on Castle Street in Great Barrington this Friday night, March 13th. Showtime is set for 7 pm. Admission is free. Tickets are available by logging here.
This 2nd annual presentation, directed by Eliza Keenan is a collaboration that pairs area high school students with The Norman Rockwell Museum based in Stockbridge featuring tales of immigration woven with art followed by a community conversation. Four personal stories by artists David Macaulay, Frances Jetter, James McMullen and Yuyi Morales will be the focus of attention as they invite others to reflect on their work and the end result will be shown on the Mahaiwe stage.
