Berkshire Creatives Sparkle at the Crane Model Farm

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsThe Berkshires is betting on artists and other creative types to keep the local economy growing by making sure there are plenty of opportunities to spark innovative creative collaborations. The annual Berkshire Creative holiday “Sparkle” party seemed especially glamorous this year for it was held at a venerable mansion that is part of the Crane & Co. stationery empire in Dalton, MA. In fact, Crane & Co. worked with Berkshire Creative last year on a “creative challenge” that invited local artists to design new stationery for the renowned company that traces its roots back to the colonial era. At the holiday party, Berkshire Creative co-chairman Kevin Sprague (left) enthusiastically wore a “Creativity Lives Here” sticker on the back of his head; the sticker was the evening’s badge of honor for it indicated that a guest was a dues-paying member of Berkshire Creative.
