110 For Our 110
Join us in celebration of our 110th Anniversary!
April 1, 2013 marked the Berkshire Museum’s 110th anniversary. Our 110 year history is a testament to the support and friendship of people like you. Now, we ask for your help again so that the Berkshire Museum can continue its legacy as a place where everyone, from toddlers to elders, can learn, play, innovate, be engaged, and inspired .
Please consider participating in the Museum’s “110 For Our 110” initiative by making a contribution of $110 or more to our Annual Fund. Your gift will be recognized on a special “110 For Our 110” donor listing in the Museum lobby, along with the other community members who are helping the Museum to look forward to our next successful 110 years. With your gift, please indicate if you would like to be entered into a drawing with other members and constituents of the Museum where the winner will be able to choose objects from the museum’s permanent collection to curate a display in the lobby niches.
This initiative is just the beginning, over the course of the year we will be celebrating this significant milestone with events designed to connect our past, present, and future. As The Boston Globe noted, “Pahat the mummy, Hudson River School paintings, and the suit of furs worn by Matthew Henson on Admiral Richard Peary’s expedition to the North Pole are a few of the treats” in our newest exhibition Objectify: A Look into the Permanent Collection. On June 14, we open a new show, PaperWorks, exploring the uses of a common material in extraordinary ways in industry, science, fashion, and art. PaperWorks also connects to our founding in 1903 by Zenas Crane, a pioneer of the papermaking industry in the Berkshires.
