Scope and Contents of the Records

This series contains the official meeting minutes for meetings of the Board of Trustees at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. The minutes are typed in narrative form and summarize the reports presented at the meetings by the Director, the President of the Board of Trustees, and various committees. The minutes also record votes taken at the meetings on issues such as loans, budgets, and acquisitions. There are typically several meetings for each year including the annual meeting and special meetings. The first volume of records also includes founding documents of the museum such as the articles of organization, an agreement of association, and early tax materials.


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.
