Pittsfield’s South Street Heats Up

Cultural correspondent Bess J.M. Hochstein reports: While sports enthusiasts took their places on the couch to enjoy chips, dips, drinks and other pre-game Super Bowl shenanigans, artists and other community members stopped at 31 South Street to take a gander and shop at the new space shared by Storefront Artist Project and Emporium. The new location gives both entities a higher-visibility, higher-traffic vantage on Park Square, Pittsfield’s central thoroughfare, in a space that once served as a temporary shop for Berkshire Museum, conveniently located right next door. Not only does the move bring Storefront Artist Project back to its main street roots, with huge plate glass windows through which the community can look in on what’s happening in the Pittsfield art world; it also affords copious display space for Emporium’s delightful merchandise.
