A Night on the Nile at the Berkshire Museum

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsTo celebrate the opening of Wrapped! Search for the Essential Mummy, the Berkshire Museum had a “Night on the Nile” gala on June 18. Several guests wore Egyptian-style jewelry but nobody took the theme more seriously than Vicki Bonnington (left, with musuem executive director Stuart Chase) who looked like a quirky Cleopatra in a beaded headdress and a chiffon dress with elaborate gold trimmings made of passementerie. The dinner was held in the august Crane Room that was decorated with hieroglyphics by Pittsfield artist Colleen Quinn. And while the opening of the exhibit was supposed to be the big news of the evening, it shared the spotlight with the announcement that the Berkshire Museum is commissioning artist Tom Patti to create a new glass vestibule for the museum’s main entrance on South Street in Pittsfield.
