STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — IS183 Art School of the Berkshires has named Michael Vincent Bushy, an artist and art educator at Hillcrest Educational Centers, is the winner of the second annual Berkshire K-12 Arts Educator Award.   
IS183 is committed to raising the profile of the visual arts in Berkshire County; this award, sponsored by the Seth Nash Creativity Fund, is designed to bring visibility and recognition to the community’s most inspiring K through 12 arts educators.

This year’s award will be presented on Saturday, May 17, at 3 p.m. during the 2014 Stockbridge Art Lab at the former Hall’s Garage at 30 Main St.

Bushy is a printmaker, working in a variety of printmaking media, as well as a bookbinder and figure artist. He brings his experience as a successful working artist – his work is exhibited throughout the Berkshires – to his work teaching students at Hillcrest Educational Centers.  At Hillcrest, a nonprofit agency that provides services to students with complex psychiatric, behavioral and/or developmental disorders, his work with this vulnerable population stands out.  Deeply compassionate, his high expectations for his students help them push past their boundaries, with lessons that are, as a colleague notes, “creative, engaging and thought provoking.”

For more information on the Berkshire K-12 Arts Educator Award or the 2014 Stockbridge Art Lab, contact IS183 at 413-298-5252 ext. 100, or visit www.is183.org.
