After providing enticing exhibitions for twenty years, the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture will close its doors with its final exhibition Elegant Pastimes: Masterpieces of Japanese Art from the Clark Collections at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
The exhibition highlights a selection of 1,200 years of Japanese art from the 8th century to 2013.
Since 1978, Bill Clark has been a relentlessly active “unrestrained, undisciplined, crazy collector,” to use his own words, and did not follow market trends or restrict himself to a specific medium, time period, artist, or motif.
Elegant Pastimes therefore offers unusually rich and personal insights into the scope of Japanese art and the nature of connoisseurship.
This is a last, joyful celebration showcasing the stunning creative range and eccentricity of Japanese art.
The Clark Center for Japanese Art & Culture is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday 12:30 to 5 p.m. with a docent tour every Saturday at 1 p.m.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and active military (with ID), 12 and under are free. Closed on Sundays and Mondays, and April 13 for Good Friday and May 25 for Memorial Day.
The Clark Center is located at 15770 Tenth Ave, Hanford, CA 93230
