Indoors, explore twentieth-century printmaking movements through a wide selection of works from the Clark's collection of Japanese prints in "Competing Currents: 20th-Century Japanese Prints," on view in the Clark's Eugene V. Thaw Gallery for Works on Paper through Jan. 30, 2022.

At 2:30 pm, join Thompson and exhibition curator Robert Wiesenberger for a walk through her outdoor exhibition culminating with a campfire and treats on Stone Hill.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) invites visitors to immerse themselves in a summer program series titled Immersions.

Programs will be held at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed by receptions on the WCMA patio at 6:30 p.m. The galleries will remain open until 8 p.m.
 
The series opens on Thursday, July 7, at 5:30 p.m. with Brooklyn-based medieval music ensemble Alkemie making their Berkshires debut with a performance of "Verdant Medicine: Hildegard's Resonant Apothecary," inspired by the life and writings of the twelfth century mystic, medic, and musician Hildegard von Bingen.
