< Return toThe Berkshires: Massachusetts Getaway
A College Town Loaded with Art
Looking for an art filled day? Make sure not to miss Williamstown on your visit to the Berkshires. The Sterling and Francine Clark Institute houses a remarkable collection of paintings, crafts, sculpture and drawings that reflect the eclectic and comprehensive taste of the couple. The adjacent Stone Hill Center is located on a wooded hillside up from the Clark with beautiful views of the mountains. There are also scenic trails if you want to hit the woods again and a special rotating exhibit is housed in the modern building. Plenty of spots for lunch in Williamstown, my favorite is Poppy's Deli with a lengthy list of vegetarian options. Nearby, the Williams College Museum of Art emphasizes modern and contemporay art from world cultures. The thought provoking exhibits dig deep and ask questions that you would hope to find at a leading center of higher learning.
