WILLIAMSTOWN, MA- The Clark Art Institute’s First Sundays Free program continues with “The Inhabited Landscape,” on Sunday, January 6. Admission to the galleries is free all day, and special art-making activities will be held from 1 to 4 pm at 225 South Street.
The day’s events encourage creativity and curiosity, both inside the museum and out in the winter landscape. In the Clark Center, explore the special exhibition “Turner and Constable: The Inhabited Landscape” with a gallery talk at 1 pm, led by exhibition curator Alexis Goodin. At 3 pm, join the Clark’s Hardymon Director Olivier Meslay in the auditorium for a free public lecture, “Turner and Constable: Stark Contrasts.”
In the Michael Conforti Pavilion, make a birdhouse, a winter plein air kit, and a “dark and stormy night” drawing inspired by weather in literature. On the lower level of the Clark Center, enjoy a special listening space where visitors are invited to relax with a sketch pad and draw what they hear, inspired by musical compositions that evoke the British landscape. After exploring the galleries and activities inside, head outdoors to hike the trails or relax with a cup of cocoa by fire pits on the Fernández Terrace.
