BCRC's Michelle Daly explains the upcoming events for the 10th season of DownStreet Art.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — DownStreet Art launched in the summer of 2008 with the goal of bringing people back to a deserted downtown with offerings of art, music and celebration.    In the decade since, the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts-sponsored program has drawn more than 150,000 people to Main Street for the once a month receptions and performances and has supported the work of 237 artists. The number of empty storefronts has dropped, forcing the project, in a good way, to utilize more outdoor and public space.    MCLA President Jamie Birge said at

Finally! It's that longed-for time again: the summer "high season" of classical music is about to begin. After an arduous winter, the summer's musical offerings will be balm to both popular music and classical aficionados, who anticipate the cornucopia of music these diverse festivals and series present.

This week, I'll focus on the three "T"s - Tanglewood, Tannery Pond and Taconic Music. Together, they make the region a cultural capital, drawing thousands to hear great music – chamber, symphony, choral, opera, musical theater, film music, contemporary classical, pop, rock, jazz- to experience masterworks within the verdant hills and dales we call

With Gal Gadot's depiction of the title character in director Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman," we at long last have a superhero who is, well, really super. The beauty breathes revivifying life into a genre that has of late become contrived, overburdened with character minutiae only zealots care about, and saddled with storylines that mistake convolution for ingenuity. While doubtless the merchandisers will make a fortune selling the lunchboxes, pajamas and other tchotchkes celebrating the franchise, for once the commercial hype can't approach the artistic triumph.   Harking back to the original, uplifting purpose of superheroes, Jenkins' superbly directed meld

I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to over-analyze "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales." I do that whenever I can't fathom for the love of me why someone would want to see the second-rate movie in question. After all, directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg's rambling, rambunctious and dysfunctionally repetitious absurdity should spell an easy day for the critic. The temptation is to write, "It's lousy and that's that. Trust me. I've been writing film criticism for years. This is strictly for those possessing the bad movie gene."   But of course I can't. Besides the fact that such short shrift would put my

LENOX, Mass. — Two scholars have made a new archival discovery: a previously unknown, original, full-length play by Edith Wharton called "The Shadow of a Doubt."

The location of the discovery at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin was unexpected. Wharton scholars have been traveling to the Ransom Center for more than three decades to research Wharton's papers. The source of their interest, however, was the author's correspondence to her lover, Morton Fullerton. What scholars missed was hidden, in plain sight, in the center's Playscripts and Promptbooks Collection (Performing Arts): two typescript copies of "The Shadow of a

Museum director Joseph Thompson listens to speakers at the grand opening event in Courtyard D.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art on Sunday officially became the largest contemporary art museum in the world when it opened its doors to another 120,000 square feet of gallery and event space.    With the clipping of an abstract (invisible) yet "shiny and glittery" ribbon, Executive Director Joseph Thompson ushered the crowd gathered in Courtyard D into Building 6 — the Robert W. Wilson Building.   Thompson's brevity on this day is understandable. He's been talking about what the doubling of gallery space at

'Alien: Covenant': All's Lousy That Ends Lousy

Director Ridley Scott's "Alien: Covenant," the sixth in the franchise with no relief in sight, has spawned a horror in and of itself. We now might press for escape to another planet not because good old Earth can no longer sustain human life, but because we simply don't want to live in a society that normalizes the mean-spiritedness epitomized by such so-called entertainment.   This gratuitous study in ugly presentiments provides us with a test of our tolerance, challenging us to rightfully recognize its deplorably regressive degeneracy as a 1st Amendment Right.   Like the similarly hostile, outer-space gambit, "Life" (2017), this tale of a colonizing

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A visitor to Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art this summer could potentially wander more than four miles if he or she circumnavigated every gallery.

So, should the museum's $65 million expansion and renovation not work out, joked Executive Director Joseph Thompson, it could always open as a health club.

In just 12 days, Mass MoCA is set to double its gallery space with the opening of the three-story Building 6. The banging of hammers accompanied Thompson's talk and tour of the museum space during a press preview on Tuesday morning as last-minute work continues in preparing the 130,000 square-foot space.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art will light up the city's famed steeples and turn the entire north side of the museum into an outdoor arts canvas.    The use of sound, light and text are designed to tie the city into the museum's summer season, part of an ongoing initiative to get visitors to wander beyond the massive arts complex.    The Public Arts Commission on Wednesday approved elements of two of the installations that will be partially placed on municipal property.   The first, a short-term installation by Jenny Holzer, includes five projectors projecting large-scale text selected by Holzer along the north side
