This Week in the Valley

This week in the Valley is a non-comprehensive list of some fun, free stuff going on in the Pioneer Valley this week.

Today started off sunny, but the cloud-cover has rolled onto the Valley & it feels like rain. Oh, well, you know what they say about April showers. This week there are some really ridiculously cool-sounding museum shows– I’m definitely checking out Andy Warhol at MHC & I hope to check out another some evening as well. You can click the calendar feed at right to add events to your google calendar.

@Mount Holyoke:
Focus on Andy Warhol
This focus exhibition, on view in the Futter Gallery, includes newly-acquired photographs, a painting, and a print by the iconic Pop artist Andy Warhol. Mount Holyoke College Art Museum (Lower Lake Road, South Hadley, MA). Admission is free, but it’s polite to donate a dollar or two. (All week)

Second Fridays at Skinner Art Museum. Admission is free 4-8pm. The artist feature isn’t listed on the SMith calendar this week, but I’ve never been disappointed. Come! (4/10/09)


“Consumed” Art Gallery
This week until 4/12 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Petula Bloomfield explores the relationship between physical and emotional identity. Sarah Bliss’s work showcases the commodity of the art object and the relationship between commercial and cultural production.(Wunderarts, 383 Main Street, Amherst, MA 01002)

@UMass Amherst:
Viewing of The Dark Knight on a 6-foot projection screen!, Thursday, April 9, 2009, 8:00pm – 10:30pm. (Machmer room E-10)

What kind of fun are you getting into this week?
