Acclaimed international arts magazine honors Clark's ‘elegance and flair’
The Clark received the 2014 Apollo Award for Museum Opening of the Year during presentation ceremonies held in London on December 3. The award recognized the Clark's distinctive success in combining new construction, a subtle renovation of its existing facilities, and a significant rethinking of its landscape to create a unified new campus. 

A Homer for the Clark

The Clark recently received the gift of a significant, rare commissioned portrait by Winslow Homer. Charles Prentice Howland (1878), an oil painting that has never been publicly exhibited, was donated to the Clark by the sitter’s granddaughter Susan Montgomery Howell. The painting is now on view in the Clark’s galleries.  See the New York Times coverage here.
