Space Available on Clark Trip to see Paul Revere Silver

For Immediate Release

April 27, 2000

Space is still available on the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute's day trip to the Worcester Art Museum on Thursday, May 11. The group will see the exhibition Paul Revere: Artisan and Patriot, which includes some of the finest silver and prints created by the American silversmith and patriot.

Worcester's entire collection of Revere silver, which includes the first and last pieces of silver he made and his largest commission, "The Paine Service," is on view. The group will also take a private tour of the American Antiquarian Society.

Founded in 1812 as the country's first national historical organization, the American Antiquarian Society library today houses the largest collection of books, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, periodicals, sheet music, and graphic arts material printed through 1876 in the United States. Cost for the trip is $60, which includes all transportation, admission, lunch, and a snack on the way home.

The bus will depart the Clark at 9:30 a.m. and return at 7:30 p.m. For more information or to reserve your space, call the Membership Office at 413-458-2303, extension 505. For further information: Sherrill Ingalls (413) 458-2303, ext. 508 (telephone) (413) 458-2318 (fax).
