Lichtenstein Center for the Arts hosts "Jump In!"

"Jump In!", a visual celebration of water in our landscape will open Friday, September 4th in Pittsfield's Lichtenstein Center for the Arts. The event will be free of charge and will boast pieces from over 20 artists including sculptors, painters, photographers, and more. Food will be provided by the nearby Brix Wine Bar.

The show will be on display through October 31 and is a feast for the senses as the gallery will be filled with the sound of Annea Lockwood's A Sound Map of the Housatonic River. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 5pm, and admission is free. The Lichtenstein Center for the Arts is located at 28 Renne Avenue in downtown Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

We encourage all attendees to create an aquatic or otherwise water related haiku as you enter the gallery as a part of a community poetry project. The opening is shaping up to be one of great beauty and is looking more spectacular as we pass through the week. We hope that many arrive on Friday night in order to view the pieces provided and enjoy an evening of sound, taste, and beauty.
