Other Voices, Other Rooms
Over at Berkshire Living, Lesley Ann Beck reviews The Strange World of Albrecht Dürer now on exhibit at The Clark.
Also at Berkshire Living, Seth Rogovoy previews the upcoming summer season at Jacob’s Pillow.

The Norman Rockewll Museum has just unveiled its new online digital collection, an image and data library of over 30,000 items from the Museum’s collections. We’re not crazy about the watermarking on the images, but it’s a gorgeous and ambitious undertaking and a fine way to lose an entire afternoon or two or three.
