Day tripping from North Bennington

Posted on: February 24th, 2012 by Patti Eddington

Enjoy World Renowned Art

The Eddington House Inn with its great Southwestern Vermont location is a jumping off point for visiting other areas in Vermont and the Berkshires.  Our North Bennington location is less than 30 minutes from Williamstown Massachusetts, home to Williams College & its wonderful college museum as well its quaint ” college town” downtown.  Just a few blocks from the college you’ll find the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute….a “must see” if you are an art lover.

 In 1950 Sterling and Francine Clark chartered the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute as a home for their extensive art collection including nineteenth-century European and American painting, with a wonderful representation of the French Impressionists. 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.

In addition to the fabulous exhibit halls, the Clark also offers special programs and performances.  This weekend, renowned harpsichordist Victor Hill will present a solo recital at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute on Sunday, February 26 at 3:00 pm. Admission is free. Featured on the program are Bach’s “Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue,” a suite by François Couperin, and selected sonatas by Giuseppe Domenico Scarlatti.

Enjoy the scenic drive over Vermont covered bridges, through historic Old Bennngton, along Monument Avenue to join Route 7 into Massachusetts where you’ll find the Clark just a few blocks from the circle in Williamstown. The Clark is just 30 minutes from the Eddington House Inn.
