CATA EXHIBIT BRINGS ARTWORK BY ARTISTS WITH DISABILITIES TO TUNNEL CITY COFFEE AT MASS MOCA
NORTH ADAMS, MA—Community Access to the Arts (CATA) presents “What I See,” an exhibit of artwork by CATA artists with disabilities at Tunnel City Coffee at MASS MoCA in North Adams. The exhibit includes work by CATA artists with disabilities from across Berkshire County, with a focus on work by artists from Berkshire Family & Individual Resources (BFAIR) and United Cerebral Palsy (UCP). The exhibit opens April 5, and a free, public reception will be held on April 25 from 1-2pm with many of the artists in attendance.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Tunnel City Coffee at MASS MoCA to share this eclectic exhibit of work by CATA artists from across the Berkshires,” says CATA Executive Director Margaret Keller. “‘What I See’ captures the broad talents of our artists and draws us into their unique perspectives. Public exhibits like this make it possible for CATA artists to share their talents with the wider community.”
“What I See” runs from April 5 through June 30 at Tunnel City Coffee at MASS MoCA at 1040 MASS MoCA Way in North Adams, MA. The works range widely in stylistic expression and scale of size. All works in the exhibit are professionally matted, framed, and available for sale, with proceeds supporting commissions for individual artists. This event is part of CATA’s “Art on Tour” program, where original works of art created by CATA artists travel throughout the year to museums, galleries, community centers, and other venues in Berkshire and Columbia counties.
The exhibit is funded by October Mountain Financial Advisors, Frames on Wheels, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and other generous supporters.
