Police: Highway crash kills Massachusetts artist

LENOX, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts police say a local artist has been killed in a two-vehicle crash.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that 72-year-old Wendy Rabinowitz, of Lenox, died Tuesday night.

Police say Rabinowitz was crossing Route 7/20 when her SUV was struck by a utility truck. She was taken to Berkshire Medical Center where she died. The driver of the truck wasn’t injured.

Rabinowitz focused on Judaica mixed media and weaving. Her art was exhibited in Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C.

She was married to Jeffrey Borak, The Berkshire Eagle’s arts and entertainment editor.

Kevin Moran, the paper’s executive editor, said Rabinowitz was “an accomplished artist” whose work “reflected intersections of peace.”
