The inaugural BCC 40 Under 40 event honored an impressive group of young individuals in the Berkshire community who are making a positive impact. Included in this group was Hillcrest’s art teacher, Michael Bushy.
Aside from serving on Pittsfield’s Cultural Development Board, Berkshire Art Association as VP, and the Berkshire Museum’s New Roots Committee, Michael brings his teaching out of the classroom with printmaking/bookbinding workshops through IS183, the Clark, Miss Hall’s School, and demonstrations at the Berkshire Museum. He also offers development workshops to the Pittsfield Public Schools and at 3rd Thursdays, where he guides children, teens and adults in creating art. Kudos to Michael for donating his art and his time to our community and advocating for the importance of the arts in the lives of our youth.
