Festival of Trees features creative holiday trees sponsored by businesses, schools, and community organizations, inspired by this year’s theme of On Safari.
The Festival of Trees is a significant fundraiser for Berkshire Museum every year — the proceeds benefit the education programs that provide more than 17,000 educational experiences annually.
This year’s safari theme is inspired by Lions & Tigers & Bears: Through the Lens with National Geographic, an exhibition of compelling wildlife photography featuring 50 photos from three of National Geographic’s top photojournalists — Michael “Nick” Nichols, Steve Winter, and Paul Nicklen. Lions & Tigers & Bears exemplifies the profound impact of visual storytelling, with stunning images of these three iconic animals. In addition to the photographs, the exhibition will include natural science specimens of animals critical to the ecosystems where these apex predators make their homes. Art and cultural objects will also demonstrate the impact that these animals have had on us, as they capture our creative imaginations. Lions & Tigers & Bears also will be on view at the Berkshire Museum from Saturday, November 15, through Sunday, January 4.
Festival of Trees 2014 On Safari and Lions & Tigers & Bears: Through the Lens with National Geographic are proudly sponsored by Hill Engineers, Architects, Planners Inc.; Pittsfield Cooperative Bank; RBC Wealth Management; and Berkshire Magazine.
