A collaborative group project of MCLA and Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah, “Waiting” will include more than 1,000 photographs, which will be selected for exhibit in MCLA Gallery 51.

The gallery will collect images of times in our day when we are waiting. The show will attempt to capture the moments that pass, unseen. This project represents a form of self-assessment as we consider these small moments in our daily lives.

Director Tom Tykwer's "A Hologram for the King," about a down-on-his-luck American businessman seeking to rectify his life through one big deal in Saudi Arabia, is the sort of film you enjoy while you're watching it, think about a little, and dismiss. The fleeting, two-pronged appeal comes thanks to the everyman charm Tom Hanks imbues in his Alan Clay, a desperate former corporate bigwig, and the inscrutable sociology he runs into whilst attempting to sell the Arab king a holographic teleconferencing program.  

We like Alan, especially after learning that his fall from Big Biz was a result of just one unfortunate decision during the Great Recession that he's

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Calling all Berkshire musicians: BOOM has arrived.

The Berkshires may be brimming with musicians, but for whatever reason, few venture far from their favorite open mic or music venue — leaving a sometimes stagnant local music scene.

"The issue with the Berkshires is it is just a spread-out area ... and there is no central place to go," BOOM co-founder Sandy McKnight said. "A lot of people are not aware of what is going on past Pittsfield if they are from South County and vice versa if they are from North County ... we want to change that mentality."

So the Berkshire Organization for Original Music was born to help connect musicians with

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Drury Arts Department will bring the play "Amadeus" and the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" to the stage this spring.

Media arts teacher Jamie Choquette said because of the high quality and talented students in the art department this year, they decided to raise the bar and take on more challenging performances to close out the year.

"The level of competence with this class was very high, and we decided that even though we were planning to do a smaller production these kids deserved something bigger," Choquette said. "There are so many students this year who are going to become music majors, study

Tax Freedom Day, which typically occurs in late April, according to the Tax Foundation, is the day when the nation as a whole has earned enough money to pay off its total tax bill for the year. So you may want to use this opportunity to determine if you can liberate yourself from some investment-related taxes in the future.

Actually, Tax Freedom Day is something of a fiction, in practical terms, because most people pay their taxes throughout the year via payroll deductions. Also, you may not mind paying your share of taxes, because your tax dollars are used in many ways – such as law enforcement, food safety, road maintenance, public education, and so on – that, taken

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Sometimes it just takes a kernel of an idea to get a community imagining up all kinds of possibilities.

On Saturday, one of those ideas will sprout into Figment North Adams, bringing community and arts together at Windsor Lake.

From stage readings and bands, to blacklight face-painting and plastic bag weaving, to yoga and wishing maps, the 6 1/2-hour event will be part arts festival, part block party, part family fun.

Figment is now an international movement that started in 2007 with a free event in New York. Its mission is to forge social and peronal interactions through participatory art.

"Rule No. 1 is to get everyone involved," said Krystal
