Please note: The Clark's galleries and auditorium are closed for renovation until July 4. Join us for our Grand Opening celebration!

The library remains open MondayFriday,
9 am–5 pm.

The Clark welcomes group visits. There are no indoor facilities for group meals, but groups may picnic outdoors in good weather. You may also want to allow time to hike on our well-maintained nature trails.

School Groups

Please note: School group visits are temporarily unavailable after March 23, 2014. We will resume scheduling school group visits on September 1, 2014.

The Clark welcomes school groups of all ages. Gallery talks can enhance student learning in general by helping students develop skills such as observation, analysis, and reasoning. Clark staff will work with teachers to tailor gallery talks to support particular areas of the school curriculum (art and science or paintings as historical evidence, for example) or classroom projects such as art and creative writing or a focus on the environment or weather. The Clark's goal is to encourage students to look carefully at works of art, to think and talk about them, and to enjoy the process.

Please see our list of popular themes for Gallery Talk topics. School group talks and transportation to and from the Clark are free of charge. Educators wishing to arrange a school group visit should fill out this form.

To plan a school visit, please see the Teacher Guidelines.
