About The Office of Cultural Development

The City of Pittsfield’s Office of Cultural Development serves as the City’s first point of contact for artists of all stripes, cultural organizations, event organizers and creative businesses in Pittsfield.  We support, promote and initiate cultural activity in Pittsfield to benefit our citizens, our quality of life and our local economy.

The Office is located in the city-owned Lichtenstein Center for the Arts in downtown Pittsfield’s Upstreet Cultural District.  The Lichtenstein Center for the Arts features a gallery/performance space featuring changing exhibitions, classes, meetings and performances; a ceramic studio; a dark room; and nine working artist studios.

The Office also manages the Pittsfield Tourism Commission and Pittsfield’s destination website, www.DiscoverPittsfield.com, featuring a comprehensive calendar of events and guide to great things to do and see in Pittsfield.

We publish the free Cultural Pittsfield This Week email newsletter, and can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, sharing the latest information on where to go and what to do, see and enjoy in Pittsfield!
