Museums Reopen in the Berkshires

Museums Reopen in the Berkshires

It’s inspiring to see some good news in the cultural sector, as museums in the Berkshires have reopened to the public after a period of lockdown.  We’re especially excited to see our client, the Clark Art Institute, featured in the New York Times.  The art critic shares that “it’s the historical collection of the Clark, which generously kept its grounds open to the Williamstown public throughout the lockdown, that feels most meaningful to return to.”  Read more at the following link.

We look forward to seeing more institutions join the Clark in opening their doors to the public in a safe way!
