Due to the overwhelming critical acclaim of Stone Hill Center and the popularity of Homer and Sargent from the Clark, Stone Hill Center and its galleries will remain open through November 30. Homer and Sargent from the Clark,the inaugural exhibition in Stone Hill Center at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, features twelve of the Clark’s masterpieces by these two great artists, shown in contemplative gallery spaces that connect art and nature.

On June 22, 2008, the Clark opened Stone Hill Center, the first phase of its expansion and campus enhancement project. Designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Tadao Ando, the wood and glass 32,000-square-foot building houses intimately scaled galleries, a meeting and studio art classroom, an outdoor café, and the Williamstown Art Conservation Center (WACC). Stone Hill Center takes advantage of the Clark’s dramatic natural setting with views of the Green Mountains and Taconic Range from the terrace.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August).
