Artscape is a volunteer-led committee which sponsors, plans, and oversees an annual juried exhibition of public art in the City of Pittsfield. The mission of Artscape is to enhance the overall character of the City’s downtown and attract visitors by installing and promoting works of art in various accessible outdoor locations throughout Pittsfield’s Upstreet Cultural District.
The outdoor sculptures are by well-known, accomplished artists, and each is unique in its own way. The Artscape walking tour is an outdoor gallery that changes with each year. Come experience the City of Pittsfield through the artists and their works.
Artscape was also a lead organizer of the 2004 Sheeptacular public art project, as well as the 2006-2007 Art Of The Game public art project. Art Of The Game brought art and baseball together in unexpected ways.
