“Home City: Photographs of Pittsfield
Join us from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 2, 2013 to celebrate the opening of an important Historical Society exhibit. Edwin Hale Lincoln was a photographer whose works in Berkshire County included Gilded Age homes of the wealthy, Pittsfield streetscapes and abundant images of nature. His book on the wildflowers of New England took decades to complete. In Home City, curator Alfred De Maio has chosen streetscapes and natural scenes of Pittsfield to reflect on both Lincoln’s skill and his eye for beauty.
