Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture Charity Profile
The Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture was formed to collect, preserve, study, exhibit, and educate the public about works of fine art. While the arts of no country are excluded, the Center's primary focus will be the arts of Japan. Through these means it hopes to further understanding of the culture of Japan and foster friendship between Japan and the United States.
Connoisseurship, defined as concern for the visual power, aesthetic quality and authenticity of works of art as recognized through the highest standards of judgement and taste, shall infuse all activities of the Center, and shall be the determining factor for deliberations and decisions by the Center's Board of Directors. Using the study and exhibition of its collection as one catalyst, the Center seeks specifically to encourage and increase recognition of the aesthetic delight which connoisseurship of works of art can provide, and to promote consideration of the inter-relationships of great works regardless of their origins in time or place. Other academic issues regarding works of art are not the concern of the Center.
Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture Volunteer Information
What a wonderful way to learn more about Japanese art and share it with others! Docent duties can include leading small groups into the museum gallery or assisting curators with large groups. Gallery assistants may also help with museum gift shop sales and answering questions about the exhibition, the history of the Clark Center, the grounds, and the gallery. For those interested in learning more about the art itself, additional training is available.
To help make our research library more accessible to scholars and visitors, library assistants reshelve books in the library area, catalog and shelve new books, and research call numbers and title data through accessing electronic library collections.
