Wilson Building is a 130,000-square-foot setting that exudes majestic river views, historic windows, and a connecting balcony.

The Museum Galleries are a set of stylish-yet-simple settings featuring contemporary art, while the vibrant Sol LeWitt Galleries offer views of the Berkshire hills. These galleries can fit 50 for a seated dinner, 150 for a ceremony, or 200 for a cocktail reception. Elopements can take place on the property with as few as 10 guests, for the couples that dream of a more intimate, close-knit ceremony.

History

The site has over 200 years of rich history that encompasses a vast complex of 19th-century mill buildings. Manufacturing for the site began in the Colonial Period right before the Revolutionary War, and was officially constructed in the 1890s as a 26-building complex. It was bought by Sprague Electric Company in the mid 1900s and was converted into an electronics plant before closing in 1985. The idea of the contemporary art center began to take shape shortly after, with a master design plan being put in place by top architects. This space has now evolved into a center that presents both changing exhibitions and performing arts events along with new-age art creations.
