The Clark is a gem of a museum rarely found in a small town. The Clark is home to collections of European, Old Master & American 19th Century paintings. The Clark has a newly expanded 140 acre campus featuring a new Clark Center designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, a one acre reflecting pool, and over two miles of trails. Two special exhibitions will be housed in the new galleries in the summer of 2014. Cast for Eternity: Ancient Ritual Bronzes from the Shanghai Museum presents thirty-two exceptional bronze vessels and bells dating from the late Xia through the Western Han dynasties (c. 1800 BCE-c. 8 CE). Opening on August 2, Make it New: Abstract Painting from the National Gallery of Art, 1950-1975 examines the different paths taken by abstract painting at that time. Also on view in the summer of 2014 is Raw Color: The Circles of David Smith, housed in the Clark's Lunder Center at Stone Hill galleries. Painted in hues contrary to those found in nature, Smith's sculptures were constructed to stand in concert with the dramatic Adirondack landscape of the fields surrounding his home and studio in Bolton Landing, New York.
