Celebration at the Clark

Nestled in the Northern Berkshires, the village of Williamstown, Massachusetts, is home to a beacon of cosmopolitan fine art and cultural treasures: The Clark Art Institute.

After months of renovations, the Clark will celebrate its grand reopening on July 4th along with Williamstown’s 4th of July parade down Spring Street and daylong holiday celebration.

Following the parade, the Clark’s celebration will begin at 11:30 AM on the East Lawn with a classic summer barbecue complete with live music and balloons. Enjoy the summer atmosphere of the outdoor picnic until 1PM when the refurbished galleries and state of the art visitor center officially open. The Clark’s scenic hiking trails and picnic areas will be open throughout the day.

The festivities will conclude with a performance by The Eagles Band, the Berkshires’ oldest performance ensemble, and a firework display at 9 PM.

Originally the private collection of Sterling and Francine Clark, The Clark’s collection consists of American and European art, including prints and drawings, sculpture, decorative arts, and paintings by artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, and Camille Pissarro. In addition, the museum serves as a research and academic center.
