Exhibit opening party planned at Clark Art Institute
WILLIAMSTOWN >> The Clark Art Institute is hosting an opening party for its exclusive summer/fall exhibition, "Splendor, Myth, and Vision: Nudes from the Prado," at 8 p.m. on June 10.
Space is limited and reservations are required. Advance tickets are available through midnight on June 9. To reserve, visit clarkart.edu/pradorsvp.
The festivities include light fare, a cash bar, and dancing with music by DJ Stacks on the Fernández Terrace overlooking the reflecting pools at the Clark Center. Guests will be provided early access to the exhibition, which opens the following day.
"Splendor, Myth, and Vision" runs June 11 through Oct. 10. The exhibit features 28 Old Master paintings of the nude, 24 of which have never been on view in the United States.
The exhibition examines the collecting of 16th- and 17th-century paintings of the nude at the Spanish court; explores the histories of these works and their display in the Spanish Royal Collections; and reconsiders the significant role of the nude in European art.
