Albert Kiesling Remembered

Albert Kiesling (1885-1968) was born in Clinton, MA and moved to Easthampton to work in the textile mills. He could often be seen in the 1940s through the 1960s around town with an easel and paintbox, capturing a town landmark or rural landscapes. Albert also created big snow sculptures and elaborate parade floats that dazzled the locals. In this short film, Easthampton residents recall fond memories of the artist and his work.
