The BAA launched the 10×10 RAP (Real Art Party) in 2013, a fun(d) venture with Storefront Artist Project and the Berkshire Museum to benefit Berkshire art students. Art is donated by artists, shown at the Berkshire Museum, and sold via ARTix at a culminating party during the City of Pittsfield’s 10×10 Festival in February. The $25 ARTtix guarantees the buyer to a work of art to take home the night of the party.
Proceeds from the 10×10 RAP will benefit Berkshire County: BAA Fellowships for college art majors • Art field trip awards for high school art classes • Free admission for art students to the Berkshire Museum.
