Scope and Contents of the Records

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute scrapbooks contain newspaper clippings that mention the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and were created between 1955 and 1993. In addition this series includes one box of loose newspaper clippings about the Clark spanning 1951-1994. The articles are about events, exhibitions, and changes at the Clark Art Institute. The 1988 scrapbook contains loose newspaper clippings which were never organized or glued to the pages. The 1993 and 1995 scrapbooks are unbound. The box of loose clippings predate the collection of scrapbooks and are articles about the earliest Clark exhibits and the opening of the museum. Some of the articles in these folders are duplicates of articles in the scrapbooks but some are unique. The scrapbooks appear to have been compiled by Sherrill Ingalls in the administrative office.


History of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute

In 1950 Sterling and Francine Clark chartered the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute as a home for their extensive art collection. Opened to public in 1955, the Institute has built upon this extraordinary group of works to become one of the most beloved and respected art museums in the world, known for its intimate galleries and stunning natural environment. One of the few institutions in the United States that combines a public art museum with a complement of research and academic programs, including a major art history library, the Clark is now a leading international center for research and discussion on the nature of art and art history. Building upon the founders' legacy, the Institute has recently unveiled its master plan for the twenty-first century, which fosters the Clark's commitment to providing space for its expanding research and museum programs while maintaining the unique character of its beautiful rural setting.
