The mission of the Barbara and Eric Rudd Art Foundation, the umbrella organization for the Berkshire Art Museum, is to preserve and examine six decades of artwork by Eric Rudd through the foundation’s permanent collection, as well as to showcase engaging contemporary art through rotating exhibitions in the Berkshire Art Museum’s galleries.
Having rescued two historic former churches and the historic Beaver Mill, the Foundation exemplifies the adaptive reuse of over 150,000 square feet of architectural space for cultural and educational purposes. By establishing and maintaining these unique art destinations, the Foundation contributes to the cultural economy of North Adams.
Berkshire Art Museum exhibitions and other art programs, including the annual ‘Eagle Street Beach,’ are supported by the Barbara and Eric Rudd Art Foundation, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, as well as generous donors. All donations are tax deductible.
