Fine Arts Center
In the fall of 2013, the new Fine Arts Center opened providing state-of-the-art classrooms for Berkshire School's extensive visual arts program, including: expansive new Studio Art and Ceramics classrooms; a new classroom for Digital Art, Digital Photography and Digital Music; a digital printing lab; a Sculpture Studio; a department office and other support facilities; and a spacious and bright new Art Gallery. This two-story 14,708-square-foot building houses all the visual arts programs under one roof.
Award-winning Boston architectural firm Finegold Alexander & Associates worked closely with the Art Department faculty to develop a space that not only meets current and future program needs, but also celebrates the fundamental role of the arts at Berkshire. “Everyone in the community has worked hard to finally give Berkshire School the Arts Center it deserves," said Art Department Chair Paul Banevicius. "We have returned the arts program to Berkshire Hall, the intellectual and academic center of the school. It will serve as a daily reminder that the arts are a vital part of every student’s experience.”
Berkshire School will celebrate the new Fine Arts Center on May 9, 2014 with the opening exhibit featuring alumni, Kristin Baker '93 and Pedro S. de Movellán '85. To learn more about the exhibit, click here.
