Rudd Studio Tours -  One of the largest individual studios in the world.  Historic Beaver Mill --see both exhibition art and behind the scenes; group prices and schedules link.
More than visiting a museum or gallery, an escorted tour of the exhibition spaces (some are not open to the public) for robotic art, dark ride project and the studios of the artist -which is probably the largest studio in the country of an individual artist-  will show visitors the processes, concepts, wet paint and dirty hands as well as how incredibly imaginative ideas come about, all within the complex of the historic Beaver Mill, adjacent to Natural Bridge State Park, the Contemporary Artists Center (founded by the artist) and near MASS MoCA. 
Appearance and informal talk by the artist can also be arranged.  Suggested minimum private tour fee: $100 and/or $10 per person; up to 30 people on a tour.  Personalized tour with artist Eric Rudd $250.  Stairs; not all areas are handicapped accessible; but rest areas can be included in tour.  Transportation from area hotels/inns and from MASS MoCA can be arranged.  Refreshments can be arranged, as well as combination with CAC galleries, Natural Bridge State Park and other sites in and around North Adams.
