Art Museum Museum
Home to a large collection of Fresh Impressionist paintings, Clark Art Institute is especially noted for housing over 30 paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Established by prominent art collectors Robert Sterling and Francine Clark to house their vast private collection of European works, the museum now serves as both a gallery and a research center, offering numerous public lectures throughout the year. In addition to masterpieces by some of the biggest names of Impressionism, the museum also features paintings by great American artists including Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, and Mary Cassatt.

  • We had a great time. We attended a lecture by the curator of the Picasso exhibit on his printing. The Clark is an amazing place, beautiful building, beautiful grounds and a superb collection. We very eager to see the Picasso exhibit!
  • I loved this museum so much. The staff is friendly and the museum it's self is a modern beauty. Right down the road is a little strip of shops perfect for lunch.
  • The museum is great, the the grounds are my favorite part. Excellent hiking trails to take a stroll on any time of year, with amazing views of the purple valley below. Dog friendly as well, though you may run into a cow or two.
  • Beautiful location, beautiful artwork and a fantastic experience. Do not miss!
