The Clark Art Institute
Celebrates Earth Day on April 22
By: Clark - Apr 16, 2021
The Clark Art Institute celebrates Earth Day on Thursday, April 22, with two guided programs that invite visitors to connect with nature and art on the Clark’s campus. Clark educators lead ninety-minute outdoor experiences that inspire participants to write, draw, move, and more as they explore the unique natural settings of the Ground/work exhibition. All participants will be provided with a blank “field journal” and pencil to record their thoughts and creations.
A 10:30 am walk starts at the Lunder Center at Stone Hill and features Nairy Baghramian’s Knee and Elbow, Eva LeWitt’s Resin Towers, and Kelly Akashi’s A Device to See the World Twice. At 1 pm, a second walk begins on the Fernández Terrace at the Clark Center and features Analia Saban’s Teaching a Cow How to Draw, Jennie C. Jones’s These (Mournful) Shores, and Haegue Yang’s Migratory DMZ Birds on Asymmetric Lens.
Both walks may involve uneven terrain. Participants are advised to wear appropriate clothing and footwear and prepare for a moderate hike.
These programs are open to all ages. All participants must wear masks and practice social distancing. Rain or snow cancels this event. Space is limited, and advance registration is required. Visit clarkart.edu/events for more information and to register.
