NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The MCLA Campus Police and the North Adams Police Departments are investigating a series of larcenies from vehicles.
 
The MCLA Campus Police Department released a Crime and Safety Alert on their Facebook page Thursday indicating that earlier this week a number of unlocked vehicles parked on campus had items stolen from them.
 
The release stated that the incidents were reported to have taken place early morning Wednesday and Thursday. 
 
Vehicles were parked on Davenport, Bond and Corinth Streets. Items were also taken from an additional four vehicles parked in the Townhouse Lots.
 
The Campus Police asked that anyone with information please call the North Adams Police Department at 413-664-4945 or the Campus Police from any campus phone by dialing extension 5100. They can also be reached at 413-662-5100.
 
The alert concluded by urging students and residents to lock their vehicles and hid valuable items from view. Although the larcenies are specific to vehicles, the Campus Police also urged students to lock doors and ground-level windows.

'Augmented Reality' Works Debut at This Week's First Friday

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — This month's First Friday event will offer a different way to engage with art: through augmented reality. 
 
The Public Arts Commission on Monday approved the installation of signage with QR codes that will give viewers the ability to see artwork overlays by John Craig Freeman and Michael Lewy on local venues. The works will go live Friday night during the Night Market on Eagle Street. 
 
"The art is augmented reality art. It exists in the virtual world, you cannot see it," said Anna Farrington, owner of Installation Space on Eagle Street that is hosting the exhibit. "The signs will communicate to viewers the QR codes that help you access the art and if you do not already have the QR app on your phone to look at the art, it will prompt you to download the Hoverlay app."
 
Farrington, chair of the commission, stepped away from her position on Monday to make the presentation. She said she had already spoken with Mayor Jennifer Macksey and Building Inspector William Meranti, who approved the project. All that was left was an endorsement from the commission for placing the signs on public property.
