6:00 PM  –  10:00 PM


“A remarkable achievement” (The Austin Chronicle), Museum Town is a new documentary that tells the story of the power of art to transform a post-industrial city. Threaded with interviews with celebrated artists including Nick Cave and David Byrne, Museum Town is about the making of MASS MoCA, directed by our very own Jennifer Trainer.

With narration by Meryl Streep and a soundtrack curated by Wilco’s John Stirratt, Museum Town traces the story of a small city in the Berkshires that went from economic collapse to art mecca. Come for beer, barbecue (by A-OK), and the screening, followed by a conversation with Trainer, installation artist Michael Oatman, and social impact investor (and The Porches Inn co-creator) Jack Wadsworth.

TICKETS $45; includes screening and barbecue. Cash bar with Bright Ideas Brewing. Reserve online or call 413.443.0188.
