Imagining North Adams - a group show at Gallery 107 in, you guessed it, North Adams.

Through artwork and participatory events, the festival invites participants to imagine North Adams as a 'canvas for our daily lives.'”
The Phylogeny Projects: North Adams School? - a group show Branch Gallery, North Adams that dared to ask: is there such a thing as a North Adams School?
