About Clark Art Institute
The Clark Art Institute is an art museum and research center in Western Massachusetts. Along with showcasing famous artists such as Winslow Homer and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the institute also offers several outdoor recreation opportunities. This parking area will bring visitors to the main building of the Clark Art Institute.
On the museum grounds, visitors will find a reflecting pool and several lawn chairs. Then, on the north side of the building, there are numerous picnic tables underneath the shade of tall trees. This is an excellent place to relax, eat lunch, and chat with friends or family on warm summer days.
Beyond the museum, an extensive network of hiking trails spreads throughout the surrounding forests and fields. The top of Stone Hill, an active cow pasture south of the institute, features expansive scenic views of Williamstown and the surrounding Berkshires. Visitors can also hike through dense woodland toward Kite Hill, which has further views of the nearby mountains.
This main parking area is at the end of a paved road that branches from South Street. Visitors will find an additional parking lot at the Lunder Center, which is reached by a road that intersects with South Street further south.
