Scope and Contents of the Records

These are the records kept by Jennifer Gordon Lovett during her career at the Clark Art Institute from 1983-1995. These files cover a large spectrum of curatorial office concerns including meeting notes, budgets, exhibition ideas, photo orders, loan records, acquisitions files, business correspondence, and grant applications. There is material concerning the CAI trustees, grad students, interns in the curatorial office, lenders, donors, and staff at other museums. This series contains a great deal of photocopied correspondence that was forwarded to Lovett but not directly addressed to her. Some of the correspondence is addressed to Lovett's assistant, Heather McIntosh.


History of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute

In 1950 Sterling and Francine Clark chartered the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute as a home for their extensive art collection. Opened to public in 1955, the Institute has built upon this extraordinary group of works to become one of the most beloved and respected art museums in the world, known for its intimate galleries and stunning natural environment. One of the few institutions in the United States that combines a public art museum with a complement of research and academic programs, including a major art history library, the Clark is now a leading international center for research and discussion on the nature of art and art history. Building upon the founders' legacy, the Institute has recently unveiled its master plan for the twenty-first century, which fosters the Clark's commitment to providing space for its expanding research and museum programs while maintaining the unique character of its beautiful rural setting.
