|Clark Art First Free Sunday
|08:09AM / Wednesday, March 29, 2023
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass.—The Clark Art Institute's First Sunday Free program continues on Sunday, April 2, offering free admission to the galleries and special exhibitions from 10 am–5 pm, a series of special activities from 1–4 pm, and a pop-up display of works on paper on view from 11 am–1 pm. April's theme is "Portals," complementing the Clark's latest exhibition "Portals: The Visionary Architecture of Paul Goesch."
According to a press release:
After walking through "Portals: The Visionary Architecture of Paul Goesch," transport yourself through a portal of imagination and creativity. Build your own "fantasy architecture" (one that's big enough to play in) using giant sheets of cardboard. This activity takes place in the Clark Center lower level and galleries. Then, experiment with color while designing a suncatcher and be ushered into the fantastical with award-winning storyteller Rona Leventhal's Kaleidoscope of Stories at 2 pm in the Clark's auditorium.
In conjunction with other portals-related activities, the Clark's Manton Study Center for Works on Paper hosts a pop-up exhibition inspired by Paul Goesch's architectural designs. See how artists from Dürer to Turner used lighting effects and enchanting decoration to enliven doors, arches, and other passageways, and illustrate their own imaginative portals. The pop-up display will be on view from 11 am–1 pm in the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper, located in the Manton Research Center.
