WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Clark Art Institute, in partnership with and Berkshire Farm & Table, will host two intimate farm-to-table dinner events - on Thursday, Aug. 29 and Friday, Aug. 30. Part of BF&T's ChefX series, these events will feature a rare culinary experience set on the terrace of the Clark's exceptional Stone Hill Center venue.
The al fresco dinners will take place on Stone Hill Center's Moltz Terrace, taking advantage of the landscape Yankee Magazine lauded as one of the best "dining with a view" options in New England. Both dinners will be prepared by Chef Dan Smith of John Andrews Farmhouse Restaurant.
The Stone Hill Table dinners have been curated to provide an elegant dining experience in a small-group setting limited to only 40 guests each night.
Smith's four-course menu features an all-locally sourced dinner served family style.
The dinner events will begin at 6 p.m., with optional behind-the-scenes programs offered at the Clark at 5 p.m.
On Thursday, members of the Clark's curatorial team will provide a private after-hours tour of the current exhibitions, "Winslow Homer: Making Art, Making History" and "George Inness: Gifts from Frank and Katherine Martucci." On Friday, guests are invited for wine and a view on the Clark's penthouse terrace for an insider's look at the architectural additions that are transforming the Clark's campus.
These dinners, featuring locally grown and produced ingredients, are sponsored by The Porches Inn at Mass MoCA with additional support from MS Walker wine and spirits and Balderdash Cellars.
Tickets are $170 per person. Tickets for either the Aug. 29 or Aug. 30 event are available through Eventbrite at eventbrite.com.
