Event description

Description

Visit a place where employees are allowed to touch the art! Monserrat Le Mense, a conservator of paintings at the Williamstown Art Conservation Center, has been cleaning and repairing works of art for more than 20 years.“We are a little like an ER” says Mense, whose job it is to get works of art cleaned and ready for the gallery.

Join us on a trip to the Lunder Center at Stone Hill Center in Williamstown, where, from galleries above the labs, you will be told about ongoing work on objects ranging from photographs, antiques and heirlooms, to some of the most important paintings, sculpture and furniture in the country. The center serves more than 50 member museums and historical societies in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.

After a tour of the new labs which were designed by Tadao Ando you may want to have lunch in the Clark Museum Cafe. Those who wish may carry their lunch outside. Some may opt to pay $20 admission to the museum to see the exhibit Renoir: The Body, The Senses. which includes drawings, paintings, pastels and sculptures by the artist, as well as by his contemporaries, and followers. The body, particularly the nude, was the defining subject of Renoir's artistic practice from his early days into the 20th century, when his revolutionary style of painting influenced the modernists.

Time: Bus leaves Sheldon Field at 9:00 AM and returns at about 4:00 PM

Cost: $58. (Includes Center admission, tour, bus & driver's tip.)
Does not include lunch or admission to the Clark Museum exhibit
