Print Story | Email Story
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Clark Art Institute's First Sundays Free program continues on Sunday, May 2. 
 
Admission to the galleries is free to all visitors for the entire day, but advance registration is necessary. 
 
Visitors are invited to explore the Clark, indoors and outdoors. See the Clark's first outdoor exhibition, "Ground/work," consisting of site-responsive installations by six international artists: Kelly Akashi, Nairy Baghramian, Jennie C. Jones, Eva LeWitt, Analia Saban, and Haegue Yang. Enjoy an outdoor, socially distanced talk about three installations—Nairy Baghramian's "Knee and Elbow," Eva Lewitt's "Resin Towers," and Kelly Akashi's "A Device to See the World Twice" —at 11 am. 
 
Space on these walks is limited. Pre-registration and face coverings are required for all participants. Visit clarkart.edu/events for more information and to register.
 
Indoors, take advantage of one of the last opportunities to see the exhibition "A Change in the Light: The Cliché-verre in Nineteenth-Century France," on view through May 16 in the Eugene V. Thaw Gallery. The exhibition features forty-four prints by five French artists and highlights the practice of cliché-verre, a hybrid process developed in the mid-nineteenth century, combining drawing and printmaking with the new medium of photography.  
 
In addition, visitors can explore the year-long installation Erin Shirreff: "Remainders," on view in the Clark's Manton Research Center and in the lower level of the Clark Center.  
 
Visitors can take advantage of special materials available at the Clark's admissions desk to enhance their visit to the Clark's galleries, including special Looking Closely cards that provide a variety of activities to do while exploring works in the Clark's permanent collection and complementary drawing pads for sketching.
