Williamstown: Art collector to speak at Clark Art Institute


While many recognize Jon Landau as the American music critic, record producer and manager of Bruce Springsteen, his name is well known in art circles as a prolific collector of 19th-century French and English painting, Renaissance and Baroque painting, and sculpture.

On Saturday, Feb. 27, at 3 p.m., Landau joins art dealer Andrew Butterfield and former Clark Senior Curator Richard Rand for the conversation "Collecting: An Afternoon with Jon Landau."

The three experts, focusing on Landau's private collection, consider how collectors decide what to collect, how changes in the art market have affected the practice of collecting, and related topics.

The free talk is open to the public and will be held in the Michael Conforti Pavilion in the Clark Center.
