Scope and Contents of the Records

These materials relate to a visit by foreign museum professionals to Williamstown and the Clark in 1965. Organized by the American Association of Museums in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State, a number of delegates from Australia, the U.S.S.R., Ecuador, and other countries were received in Williamstown by a number of people from the Clark, Williams College, and other cultural institutions in the Berkshires. They had formal banquets at the Springs, the Williams Inn, and the 1896 House, and viewed the Clark's collection. The visit took place May 15-17. This collection includes menus from the banquets, tourism materials that were assembled for the visitors, and biographical information on participants.


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.
