Art Meets Science at MASS MoCA!

Who says beauty is only skin deep? The work of two internationally acclaimed British artists, Nick Veasey and Marilene Oliver, brings us back to our foundation and examines the human form from the inside out. Through the use of x-rays, MRIs, and CT scans, the new exhibit, “It’s Only Human,” depicts the intricate and complex network that makes up the human body, a notion that viewers might rarely think about. Veasey and Oliver use this medical imaging technology to showcase what exactly is happening underneath our skin to reflect a deeper meaning of what exactly it means to be human. Their artwork reminds viewers that beauty is much more than what meets the eye and that we are more alike than we typically think. This exhibit is on view now until May 25, 2015.

The Clark Reopens!

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute reopened on July 4, 2014 after a much-anticipated museum expansion by a Pritzker Prize–winning architect, Tadao Ando. Ando designed a new wing for the Clark, which features additional stunning gallery spaces as well as an underground café, all illuminated by natural light from above. The building adds 11,000 square feet of new galleries and is composed of glass walls overseeing a three-tiered reflecting pool with striking views of the property’s rural surroundings.
