During the five days that follow, the galleries will be a flurry of collage of every sort: from paper and glue, to film and sound, if it can be cut apart, appropriated, moved around, and pieced together into a new form, it's bound to be happening in the "woodshed". Visitors are encouraged to stop by and watch the work in progress from 10am-6pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

What does it take to re-arrange the entire collection of The Clark Art Institute? When The Clark undertook the largest renovation project of its history, North Adams based artist Andy Davis reproduced their world- renowned collection on cardboard so the curators could plan new installations. Now these cardboard mock-ups are presented as art objects in their own right. An exhibition within the exhibition, Masters in Cardboard will take viewers on an imaginary trip through the Clark's collection.
