Board of Directors

We, as members of the board of the Berkshire Art Association  stand united in our sadness and outrage over the senseless killings of Black Americans whose lives have been cut short by continued acts of racial violence. We decry the injustice that infects our community and  pervades our institutions. We stand in solidarity with protestors in the United States, the world, and in our own community as we make our voices heard.  It is the sincere hope of the BAA that we recognize our collective responsibility to build an equitable society for everybody.

Art does not exist independently from current events.

Art is a powerful tool that can engage our hearts and minds.

Let us not be daunted by the world’s grief and unrest.
