And don’t forget these arts destinations ...

You had a big miss in this morning’s editorial “We are an arts destination.” There is another kind of music present here in Franklin County. You don’t have to go to Northampton, Springfield, Boston or New York to hear great classical music. The Mohawk Trail Concerts in Charlemont is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and, in addition to the series of concerts each summer, they provide free concerts at Arms Library in Shelburne Falls and performances for prisoners in the County jail.

You also (once again) failed to mention the Art Garden in Shelburne Falls that provides the opportunity to all of us to make art throughout the year with children, teen and adult studio time as well as offering well over a thousand people every summer at the Green River Festival with free art-making opportunities. I’m hoping this year your reporters will check out the Art Garden tent at the Festival (and make some art as well). And come to a Mohawk Trail concert with me. If you’ve never been, you can have a free ticket!
