Lines from Life

Lines from Life: French Drawings from the Diamond Collection

In celebration of the generous, ongoing gift of Herbert and Carol Diamond, this exhibition explores an array of figure drawings by leading nineteenth-century French artists. Works by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, the Flandrin family, Eugène Delacroix, Edgar Degas, Jean-Léon Gérôme, and Odilon Redon illustrate the ebb and flow between academic traditions of drawing the body and freer approaches that challenged those conventions.

Pia Camil: Velo Revelo

This yearlong exhibition in public spaces around the Clark features a new, site specific installation by Pia Camil, as well as two of the artist’s large-scale sculptures in fabric. The title, Velo Revelo, pairs the Spanish for a “veil” and the verb “reveal.” Pia Camil lives and works in Mexico City, and studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Slade School of Fine Art in London.


We are working towards that moment when we will be able to open our doors to welcome you back. We don’t know quite yet when that day may come, but we are preparing for it with a true sense of hope and with the joy of knowing that a return to normal will give us all the opportunity to reconnect with the pleasure of wandering our galleries.

For now, we continue to send you our most sincere wishes for your health and well-being. Remember that our grounds are still open and our trails are yours to explore and enjoy. In the interest of community health, we remind you to practice social distancing while on our grounds—for people and pets.

Please stay in touch and please know how deeply we appreciate all the kind words and support you have shown.
