Fine art and fine dining come together for a special evening at the Clark Art Institute. Learn about French influence on world culture as you tour the museum’s latest exhibitions and enjoy a delicious, six-course meal.
The evening begins with private tours led by exhibition curators of “Women Artists in Paris, 1850–1900” and “The Art of Iron: Objects from the Musée Le Secq des Tournelles, Rouen, Normandy.” The former exhibition, which opened on June 9, explores the female artist renaissance of 19th century Paris, showcasing a range of paintings from that era. “The Art of Iron,” which opened the same day, features blacksmithed works including locks, keys, balcony grills, and signs found in 18th-century France.
