Clark Art Institute
An amazing museum, world-renowned and tragically underused by Williams students. The museum's collection includes a famous sculpture by Degas, a room full of impressionist paintings, the only marble sculpture in a several-hundred-mile radius, and hundreds of other masterpieces.
The museum houses the collected artwork of Sterling and Francine Clark. It is rumored that Williamstown was chosen as the site to house his collection because it was unlikely to be bombed.
The Clark is the reason for Williams' art history graduate program.
If you are a Williams student and you have not yet been to the Clark, take an hour or two, walk over, and wander around. It's like having one room of the Louvre in your back yard; you might as well take advantage of it.
