Ten Years of Trinkett Clark Memorial Student Acquisitions
This exhibition celebrates the ten years of the Trinkett Clark Memorial Fund. Established in honor of Trinkett Clark (1951–2006), curator of American art at the Mead from 2001 until her untimely death, her family’s gift helped create an innovative annual program in which curators and educators work with Amherst College students to help select a contemporary print for the museum to purchase. Thanks to the Trinkett Clark Memorial Student Acquisition Fund, students have helped choose nearly forty works for the Mead thus far, and this exhibition showcases some of those diverse acquisitions.
