Williamstown, Massachusetts—Enjoy a social evening of creativity, live jazz, and artful conversation at the Clark Art Institute for Clark After Hours on Friday, February 3 at 7 pm. In conjunction with the Institute’s special exhibition Japanese Impressions: Color Woodblock Prints from the Rodbell Family Collection—and in the spirit of Setsubun, a Japanese celebration signifying good luck in the coming spring—Clark After Hours offers private, after-hours access to the exhibition, including gallery talks at 7:30 and 8:00 pm. An art-making session invites visitors to create a kintsugi collage wall hanging inspired by the Japanese wabi-sabi aesthetic.
Tickets are $10 ($8 members) and may be purchased online at or by calling 413 458 0524. A cash bar and light fare will be available.
