Once again, the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown will once again host a series of five free weekly concerts throughout the month of July. The concerts take place on the institute’s south lawn at 6pm on Tuesdays.

Concert-goers can purchase barbecued fare at the concert or bring a picnic dinner. In the event of rain, concerts will be moved indoors to the institute’s auditorium.
