Magna Carta Comes to the Clark

Exciting news! The Magna Carta is coming to the Clark Art Museum in Williamstown, MA in September. This document was foundational in the formation of the U.S., as well as in the writings of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights . As Franklin Delano Roosevelt said in his 1941 inaugural address,

“The democratic aspiration is no mere recent phase in human history . . . It was written in Magna Carta.”

Not only will the Magna Carta be on display, but the Clark will also be hosting five other historically significant documents in American history : the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Declaration of Rights of the Women of the United States, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
