The Berkshire Museum Injunction Hearing on November 1, 2017

Pittsfield, MA – Judge John Agostini presides over hearing in Berkshire Superior Court on efforts to block the upcoming sale of Berkshire Museum artworks. Attorney General’s Office files emergency motion in Berkshire Museum suit / By Larry Parnass, The Berkshire Eagle


A grassroots citizens group established in 2017 with the intent of stopping the sale of the Berkshire Museum’s treasured art collection in order to find an alternate solution to its continued financial shortfall.


The mission of Save the Art is to advocate for and protect the Public Trust — the art and objects belonging to all of us that document humankind’s creative and social history through time.


We thank the Berkshire Eagle for their extensive investigative coverage, the journalists, op-ed writers and our community for their hundreds of letters of concern. In particular, STA applauds Larry Parnass, Investigations Editor, Berkshire Eagle, for his excellent coverage of the Berkshire Museum and achievement of the 2018 Outstanding Journalism award from the New England Newspaper and Press Association.
