The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is both an art museum and research center, welcoming visitors year-round to experience its outstanding collections of European and American art in an intimate setting surrounded by the profound natural beauty of the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Set on a 140-acre campus of expansive lawns, meadows, and walking trails, the Clark is home to exceptional examples of European and American painting and sculpture, master prints and drawings, English silver and porcelain, and early photographs. The museum is best known, however, for its extraordinary collection of French Impressionist paintings.

The Clark Grounds
Surrounded by 140 acres of expansive lawns, meadows, and walking trails, the Clark is located in a setting of profound natural beauty. The windows of its galleries afford views of the surrounding woods and fields, adjacent farm pastures, and a nearby lily pond. Walking trails traverse the property, including trails up historic Stone Hill, which offers a spectacular view of Williamstown and the Green Mountains of Vermont to the north. Picnic tables and benches dot the property, enabling visitors to pause and enjoy the surroundings.
