Tag Archives: The Clark Museum

On a beautiful December day, Robert, Lulu and I travelled up picturesque Route#7 to Williamstown, MA. to see the new Tadao Ando addition to the CLARK MUSEUM. On this trip, we were more interested in the architecture than the art, although we looked in the galleries as well. A little history; in 1955 Sterling Clark engaged the architect Daniel Perry to design his private museum.  His request was for a classically styled, domestically scaled and solidly constructed building for the art collection he had carefully assembled over forty years. The original building evokes a Greek temple clad in beautiful Danby marble. It has elegant details and a neoclassical facade.
