Autumn in the Berkshires is living art. The landscape is a canvas of colors – red, russet, orange, yellow, green, blue… It is interactive art at its finest.
The Norman Rockwell Museum has integrated this natural art into one of its exhibits. “An Outdoor Installation for the 21st Century” has been at the museum all summer and it lingers to stand against a backdrop of fall foliage. It will close October 31, 2011.
Have you seen the 2005 film Robots? If so, you have some idea of what you’ll find on the grounds of the Norman Rockwell Museum. Artists and craftspeople from all media were invited to submit sculptural robots inspired by the the film. The robots stand in stark contrast to the traditional paintings inside the museum, and the pastoral landscape surrounding it.
It’s worth a look.
Come spend a few days at our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast. The Applegate Inn is located in Lee Massachusetts, just a few miles from Stockbridge and the Norman Rockwell Museum. It takes about fifteen minutes to drive to the museum from here, and less than 45 minutes to bike there.
