‘Henry Klimowicz: Constructs’ Opens at the Berkshire Museum
There were more than few a Berkshire Museum virgins from Columbia, Dutchess and Litchfield counties who came to Pittsfield on Saturday night to celebrate the opening of Henry Klimowicz: Constructs. The exhibit got a rave review from artist and blogger Grier Horner, who was awed by the 20-foot-wide sculpture hanging from the ceiling in the Crane Room. “Henry Klimowicz has made a heroic piece of art…It is both ethereal and commanding, spiritual and perhaps slightly ominous,” Horner wroter on his blog. “Like Rumpelstiltskin who spins straw into gold in the fairy tale, Klimowicz’s alchemy is spinning cardboard into art.”
