Williamstown, Massachusetts—The Clark Art Institute continues its “First Sundays Free” program on Sunday, February 3. Admission to the galleries is free all day (10 am–5 pm), and free activities for the whole family will be held from 1–4 pm.

This month’s session, “Fresh Takes,” offers a day of new perspectives, introspection, and inspiration. Spend some “me time” in the galleries, unplug by leaving your cell phone with a courtesy phone check, and pick up a self-guide designed for personal reflection. In the Michael Conforti Pavilion, decorate a chalkboard to help you stay organized and face the rest of the year with a clean slate, then write a motivational letter to your future self to be mailed by the Clark in six months. Try your hand at “Caption This” in the Museum Pavilion to give new voice to an iconic Clark image, and visit the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper for a pop-up exhibition featuring recent acquisitions.

All activities and admission to the galleries are free as part of the Clark’s First Sundays Free program, supported by funding from the officers and employees of Allen & Company, Inc.
