Williamstown, Massachusetts—The Clark Art Institute’s First Sundays Free program, which offers free admission on the first Sunday of the month from October–May, continues on Sunday, April 7 with “Everyday Heroism.”

Activities explore what it means to be heroic in myth, in history, and in everyday life with guided gallery talks led by a Clark educator at 1 pm and 3 pm, a super movie marathon, and a “Hero HQ,” where visitors can make a custom superhero mask to help assume a secret identity. A “Small Heroics” station assigns do-good missions to bring to families and communities.

Galleries are open 10 am–5 pm, and free activities will be held 1–4 pm. The First Sundays Free program is generously supported by funding from the officers and employees of Allen & Company, Inc.
