Williams Music Calendar Wins Printing Award

Print Story | Email Story
WILLIAMSTOWN - The fall 2007 calendar released by the Williams College music department has been named an award winner in a graphic design competition by the Printing Industries of New England. The calendar was produced by ArrowPress Inc. in Pittsfield and designed by Erin Keiser-Clark, a resident of Williamstown. ArrowPress submitted the calendar in the Awards of Excellence Competition held by the Printing Industries of New England. The competition attracted 340 entries from 56 printing and imaging companies. Judging was based on artistic criteria, including clarity and neatness, paper and ink selection, and sharpness and richness of color. The college's music calendar has a dramatic new look. It uses fiery colors, vivid photos, and elegant calligraphy, and displays them against a black backdrop. The calendar opens like a brochure to list the music department's events. David S. Kechley is chair of the college's music department.

New Williams Inn Opens on Spring Street

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

Chef Kevin DeMarco has put together a menu informed by local produce. He is part of leadership team appointed by Waterford Hotel Group, which manages the hotel for Williams College.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The new Williams Inn is positioned to be a catalyst for the town's retail center on Spring Street as well as a bucolic retreat for guests — as exampled by the deer grazing near the patio this week.  
"We really want to be an indoor/outdoor experience," said Kevin Hurley, the inn's general manager, during a press preview just days before the hotel's opening on Thursday. "We will see a lot of those features, again with the windows, and just the way the hotel feels is really connecting ourselves to the outside." 
The $32 million, 64-room hotel at the bottom of Spring and Latham streets replaces the 100-room original hotel at Field Park that closed on July 31. The older inn, purchased by Williams College in 2014, was considered outdated and energy inefficient for an institution that's committed itself to sustainability. 
That commitment can be seen throughout the 58,000 square-foot three-story New England-style structure — from its reclaimed wood to its high-performance facade and solar PV array.
