Saturday

Start with art: Two free lectures this afternoon focus on art. First, at 4 p.m. at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, a talk will feature three noted museum directors — Earl A. Powell III, Glenn D. Lowry and Michael Govan — presenting “Williams Art History and Museum Leadership” in which they will talk about their experiences as students at Williams College in the 1960s, '70s, and '80s in relation to their distinguished careers. Then, at 5 p.m. Chesterwood in Stockbridge will host “A Conversation with Julie McCarthy, Artist-in-Residence” in conjunction with the exhibition “An Oasis of Beauty” featuring the McCarthy's work.

Sunday

Four is more: The Four Top are coming to the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington tonight at 7 p.m. The quartet, originally called the Four Aims, made their first single for Chess in 1956, and spent seven years on the road and in nightclubs, singing pop, blues, Broadway, but mostly jazz—four-part harmony jazz. When Motown’s Berry Gordy Jr. found out they had hustled a national “Tonight Show” appearance, he signed them without an audition to be the marquee act for the company’s Workshop Jazz label. That proved short-lived, and Stubbs’ powerhouse baritone lead and the exquisite harmonies of Fakir, Benson, and Payton started making one smash after another with the writing-producing trio Holland-Dozier-Holland.  Tickets to their Mahaiwe show are $35-$70 and can be purchased online.
