Williamstown, Massachusetts—Spend quality time in the galleries and bring the whole family for Father’s Day art-making activities at the Clark Art Institute on Sunday, June 17 from 1–4 pm.
Spark conversation with the help of a special Father’s Day gallery guide and make a special nineteenth-century-style Medal of Honor inspired by the museum’s newest addition, an exquisite oil painting called Portrait of Achille Deban de Laborde by French painter Alexandre-Jean Dubois-Drahonet. Pick up a picnic meal from Café 7 and enjoy lunch while relaxing by the reflecting pools or exploring the Institute’s hiking trails.
