On Saturday, April 8, Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School hosted our 10th annual "Get BART Smart" fundraiser – and raised $27,843 (net) for the school's college preparatory programs. Over 130 people attended – and re-lived their high school years through our team trivia game. A huge "thank you" to all who played and made it a great evening!

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Jarvis Rockwell's "American" assemblages now hang in the foyer of Bowman Hall at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.   "It's a lot easier than taking it home," Rockwell joked as he pointed out some of his favorite tchotchke fixed to one of the assemblages at his reception Tuesday. "It's collage and I just began on one end and kept going until I ran out of space."   The assemblages of lightly draw lines and shapes scattered with small items of all sorts have been a fixture at DownStreet Art over the past few years and will most likely be familiar to anyone who has walked down main street.   "Jarvis
