Friends of the Clark to Travel to Boston March 24

For Immediate Release

March 03, 2004

The Clark Art Institute will sponsor a day trip to Boston on Wednesday, March 24. The group will see two special exhibitions of art from hotter climes: Gauguin-Tahiti at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Made in Mexico/Hecho en México at the Institute of Contemporary Art. The group will depart the Clark at 7:30 a.m. and return at approximately 7:30 p.m. Cost for the trip is $100 per person for members; the price includes motor coach transportation, admission, tour guide fees, and a snack on the return home. Space is limited; reservations are required by March 17. To reserve, call the membership office at 413-458-2303, extension 225.

Paul Gauguin's years in Tahiti produced his most powerful and mysterious canvases, full of brilliant color and exotic subjects. Gauguin-Tahiti traces Gauguin's career from his departure for Tahiti in 1891 until his death in the Marquesa Islands in 1903. The exhibition of more than 150 works by Gauguin received rave reviews in Paris. The MFA is its only U.S. stop.

Made in Mexico highlights the work of twenty international artists who explore Mexico as a site for both artistic inspiration and cultural commentary. In work ranging from photography and video to sculpture and installation, these artists express their views of the country, its history, and how it is seen by the rest of the world.

Day trips and international travel opportunities are among the many benefits of membership in the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. For more information, 413-458-2303, extension 225.
