Clark Center in Summer

WELCOME!

The Clark is open and we look forward to welcoming you back. Please note that from May 4 to May 28, several galleries in our permanent collection will be temporarily unavailable due to on-going renovation activities. During this period, the Clark's regular admission will be reduced to $10 per day. Please click here to book admission tickets. 

The Clark currently has travel restrictions in place that affect all out-of-state visitors. We've posted details about the new visiting plans HERE to let you know what to expect and how to plan your visit. Out-of-state visitors will be asked to attest to their compliance with the Clark's guidelines prior to ticketing. 

Visiting the Clark is a little different these days but rest assured that we are doing everything we can to make your visit as pleasant as possible while still being very careful to ensure that we are operating in compliance with all of the Massachusetts health and safety guidelines. Please note that all visitors are required to wear a face covering, indoors and out,  and must practice social distancing at all times. 

Advance registration is required so that we may manage contact tracing protocols. Click here to purchase timed tickets.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

The Clark Art Institute condemns the persistent systemic racism that has fueled senseless brutality against Black people and people of color. We are outraged and saddened by the grievous murders we continue to witness. We are also appalled by the structural racism in our public service systems that has led to disproportionate losses suffered by Black communities during the pandemic. We stand in solidarity against racism in any form. Black lives matter.

Committing to change is the only way we can honor the legacies of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others. We cannot look away from the truth of our nation’s simmering bigotry or from the institutional inequity that underlies cultural organizations like ours.

As a museum and a center for research, the Clark has much to learn and much to do in changing our institution in support of our mission and in service to our communities. Although our staff is working on issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, we have not done enough. We have a sense of immediacy and a deep commitment to making change happen, including hiring practices, programming, and expanding the ways we use and talk about art.

We live in troubled times. We can do better. We will do better.
