The Clark Art Institute’s summer 2018 exhibition, “Women Artists in Paris, 1850–1900,” celebrates an international group of artists who overcame gender-based restrictions to make extraordinary creative strides, taking important steps in the fight for a more egalitarian art world. It is on view in Williamstown through September 3.

In addition to “Women Artists in Paris,” The Clark is the exclusive venue for the exhibition “The Art of Iron: Objects from the Musée Le Secq des Tournelles, Rouen, Normandy.” The exhibition presents thirty-six historic objects in an installation celebrating the craft and beauty of wrought iron. That exhibition is on view through September 16th.
