Williamstown, Massachusetts—It’s never too early to introduce children to art! The Clark Art Institute warmly welcomes new parents and their infants to a New Parents Gallery Talk on Friday, February 2 at 10:15 am. The informal guided talk, designed to give parents a break from thinking about “all things baby,” is best suited for parents with pre-toddlers. Strollers and front-style baby carriers are permitted.

This program is supported by funding from the officers and employees of Allen & Company, Inc.
