Celebrating 20 years of public access to the Pillow Archives, Blake's Barn reopened at the start of Festival 2015 following an exciting expansion. Stop by the new Norton Owen Reading Room to enjoy additional video stations and displays, with even more ways to discover dance.

To enliven and deepen each visitor's experience, Jacob's Pillow offers a variety of art and photography exhibits that augment Festival programming and celebrate the Pillow's rich history. All exhibits are free and open to the public throughout the Festival. Housed in Blake's Barn (next to the Box office), the Pillow's extensive Archives open a window to the past, present, and future, and exemplify founder Ted Shawn's mission to broaden appreciation for dance. For more information on past exhibits, visit archives.jacobspillow.org/exhibits

Visitors across the globe can experience decades of dance at the Pillow through our online video archive, Jacob's Pillow Dance Interactive. Visit danceinteractive.jacobspillow.org to experience it yourself. 

Festival 2015 is now over. Please check back in May for our 2016 Exhibits.


"Performances, talks, exhibitions, open classes and films and videos seem to sprout up everywhere as one walks across lawns, past gardens and into the rustic theaters, studios and exhibition centers."
