The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA)—housed in a huge converted nineteenth-century factory complex in North Adams—is one of the principal centers for contemporary visual and performing art in the United States. Museum Town tells a story of North Adams and MASS MoCA: the spirit, risks, and expectations that went into making it work and the capacity for art to generate cultural and economic rebirth. The film features original music by John Stirratt and Wilco and appearances by artists ranging from James Turrell to Bill T. Jones. (Jennifer Trainer, 2019, 76 minutes)
