Created by Professor June Bisantz, Nature & the City is a series of seven altered street signs that connect Downtown Pittsfield’s urban life in to the spectacular natural environment of the Berkshire Hills, which exists right outside the city. Each sign refers to specific local or regional wildlife accompanied by aspirational words. The signs are installed on North Street, Renne Avenue and at the Dunham Mall/City Hall, and will be on view in public space through April 2016.
