The Greater Good: Bennington Museum reopens, March Madness excitement
Bennington Museum reopening after three months
The Bennington Museum will reopen to the public on Saturday, April 1 at 10 a.m. The galleries at the museum have been closed to the public for the past three months as the curators, the maintenance team, and volunteers worked to re-install, clean and organize collections. The museum will be offering half-off admission on April 1, which will include special talks and events throughout the afternoon.
Fundraiser to build W.E.B. Du Bois sculpture
There’s been a major step forward to honor Great Barrington native son W.E.B. Du Bois. Fundraising is underway to build a sculpture in honor of the world-famous sociologist and founder of the NAACP. The Du Bois Sculpture Project has now raised more than $150,000 and is ready to hire a sculptor.
March Madness fun outside the MVP Arena
Even if you don’t have a ticket to March Madness at the MVP, you’re invited to the party. Food trucks, games and more will be outside the arena all weekend long hosted by Sports Foundation of the Capital Region. Games will be displayed on the two large video boards affixed to the exterior of the arena. This is the first time Albany has hosted the NCAA men’s tournament since 2003. The block parties are Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., and Sunday two hours before tip-off.
