We need your help!

Letters of support to legislators for our two shovel ready projects would be invaluable in helping secure this funding for North Adams and the Berkshires.

MASS MoCA’s projects under consideration are:

1.  Solar Center:  Expanding on our successful existing array of solar panels we have proposed increasing our capacity to turn the sun into electricity tenfold and creating a public showcase and educational training facility for large scale solar energy technologies.  Download a PDF to learn more.

2. Berkshire Art & Archive Center, a 30,000 sf, climate-controlled, high-security archive, art storage and digitalization facility that would be built on the existing 8,500-square-foot concrete foundation of the former Building 15, which was torn down in 2004.  The Center would not only provide storage and archive space for the museum, but also lease space to cultural institutions and collectors. More details.

You can help make this a reality by calling, writing, or emailing your legislators listed here
