An Eye for Excellence: Twenty Years of Collecting

October 25, 2015–April 10, 2016
Why and how museums acquire works of art is demystified in the exhibition An Eye for Excellence: Twenty Years of Collecting. Focusing on some of the very best works of art acquired by the Clark since 1995, the exhibition tells the stories of collectors who have donated objects to the museum; how these new objects enhance the existing collection; and the process of accepting an object—either by purchase or gift—into the collection.

Thomas Schütte: Crystal

Thomas Schütte: Crystal is the contemporary artist’s first full-scale architectural artwork in the United States. Located on a meadow near the top of Stone Hill, Crystal provides visitors the opportunity to reflect on how landscapes and places are constructed and preserved. Pick up a trail map at the admissions desk and take a hike to the installation.

In celebration of Thomas Schütte: Crystal, the Clark hosts a free afternoon of fun and learning.
