WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Tuesday, August 30, the Clark Art Institute partners with the Highland Street Foundation to host August Adventures Day, providing free admission for all visitors.

August Adventures Day at the Clark is offered as a part of the Highland Street Foundation’s continued commitment to making cultural, historical, and nature venues accessible to all. August Adventures provides opportunities throughout the month of August for individuals, children, and families across the Commonwealth.

Each day, the program makes one museum, zoo, nature sanctuary, or event available to all with no admission fee. On August 30, visitors can visit three special exhibitions, Rodin in the United States: Confronting the Modern; José Guadalupe Posada: Symbols, Skeletons, and Satire; and Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander, and the permanent collection galleries—featuring a rich array of works by artists, including John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Edgar Degas.

Additionally, the Clark’s grounds, which are always open free of charge, provide miles of walking trails. Drawing Pads and Looking Carefully Cards are available for sketching or to search the collection. The Clark’s Art Lab space also provides an area for hands-on artmaking activities.

"We are thrilled to partner with these institutions and shine a spotlight on the wonderful cultural resources our Commonwealth has to offer. The arts community has shown tremendous resiliency through the pandemic, and it is a pleasure to join with them to welcome everyone back through their doors," said Highland Street’s Executive Director Blake Jordan.

Letter: Why I Support Paul Mark

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

I've known Paul Mark all his political life, and we couldn't ask for a better person to be our next state senator in Boston. Paul is an experienced and practical progressive who will hit the ground running in the state Senate.

In 2010, Paul was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives to serve the 2nd Berkshire district. And ever since, he has fought for working families, calling for Medicare-for-all, higher-education funding reform, student debt relief, funding for vocational programs, and major transformative solutions to the climate crisis, among other issues.

Yes, Paul knows what it means to work. He came from humble circumstances to earn associate, bachelor, master and doctoral degrees, and finally a law degree. He was able to do it because union benefits made it possible, and he wants others to have the same opportunities. That's why he fights for good-paying jobs in our communities and access to affordable transportation and high-speed broadband internet for all our communities.

Western Mass. needs experienced representation in Boston. I've already mailed my ballot for Paul Mark. I hope you'll soon do the same.
