Williamstown, Massachusetts—“Looking and Lunching: Tricks of the Trademark,” an afternoon of focused investigation and friendly discussion with fellow art lovers, will be held at the Clark Art Institute on Thursday, May 18 at 12 pm. Curatorial Assistant Genevieve Hulley examines The Presentation of the Virgin in the Temple, a print included in the exhibition Looking North and South: European Prints and Drawings, 1500–1650. The iconic Albrecht Dürer work was the subject of a bitter copyright dispute.
Tickets are $20 ($12 members) and include admission to the galleries, careful observation of the print followed by informal discussion, and lunch provided by Café 7. Menu choices include a spring green salad with roasted grapes, pistachios, goat cheese, red onion, and balsamic herb vinaigrette or a Cuban sandwich with roasted pork, ham, pickles, Swiss cheese, and mustard. To purchase tickets and select a menu option, visit or call 413 458 0524.
