The Clark Art Institute - Williamstown, Mass.

The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts is an art museum of elegant distinction in a rustic surrounding, unique just for that, and well worth the trip out to the Berkshires.

Sterling and Francine Clark began the museum after years of adding to a personal collection that dates from 1910. The Clark Art Institute was founded in 1950 as a museum as well as a center for research and higher education.

The white marble building dates from 1952, and the campus has grown and developed to include additional galleries and an expanded library. The Williamstown Art Conservation Center was founded on this campus in 1977. The campus includes walking trails and picnic areas, a beautiful environment to experience great art.
