Haystack Mountain School of Crafts

Throughout the summer, Haystack faculty, visiting artists, technical assistants and staff share their inspirations, ideas, and work as part of our Summer Evening Program Series. The presentations include slide lectures, musical performances, and readings of their work by poets and writers. Self-guided studio tours and end-of-session auctions are held at the end of each session, offering work donated by session faculty and participants. Summer Evening Program Series events, unless otherwise noted, are held in Gateway Auditorium, located at the entrance to campus, where faculty exhibitions are also on view throughout the season. Contact Haystack for more information.

All programs begin at 7:30 pm, unless otherwise noted and are free and open to the public.
