Clark Art, Highland Street Foundation to Host August Adventures Day
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Tuesday, August 30, the Clark Art Institute partners with the Highland Street Foundation to host August Adventures Day, providing free admission for all visitors.
August Adventures Day at the Clark is offered as a part of the Highland Street Foundation’s continued commitment to making cultural, historical, and nature venues accessible to all. August Adventures provides opportunities throughout the month of August for individuals, children, and families across the Commonwealth.
Each day, the program makes one museum, zoo, nature sanctuary, or event available to all with no admission fee. On August 30, visitors can visit three special exhibitions, Rodin in the United States: Confronting the Modern; José Guadalupe Posada: Symbols, Skeletons, and Satire; and Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander, and the permanent collection galleries—featuring a rich array of works by artists, including John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Edgar Degas.
Additionally, the Clark’s grounds, which are always open free of charge, provide miles of walking trails. Drawing Pads and Looking Carefully Cards are available for sketching or to search the collection. The Clark’s Art Lab space also provides an area for hands-on artmaking activities.
"We are thrilled to partner with these institutions and shine a spotlight on the wonderful cultural resources our Commonwealth has to offer. The arts community has shown tremendous resiliency through the pandemic, and it is a pleasure to join with them to welcome everyone back through their doors," said Highland Street’s Executive Director Blake Jordan.
