Williamstown, in the northwest corner of Massachusetts, is a charming college town that is a mecca for art and culture. It is home to Williams College, the Clark Art Institute and the Tony-awarded Williamstown Theatre Festival.
The permanent collection of Williams College Museum of Art has over 12,000 works of art ranging from 9th-century B.C. Assyrian stone reliefs from the palace of King Ashurnasirpal II, to one of the last self-portraits by Andy Warhol. It also has works by artists Louise Nevelson, Ben Shahn, and Louise Bourgeois's outdoor sculpture entitled "Eyes". Said Bourgeois:"The eyes are the window of the soul, reflecting feelings and truth. They are the best way to communicate with the world, with others."
