The Berkshires has long been home to internationally recognized cultural contributors to the arts. Residents have included Daniel Chester French, sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, and American illustrator, Norman Rockwell. Many well known artists now make their homes in the Berkshires and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, located in North Adams, is one of the worlds largest contemporary art museums and a major player in the international art scene .
