The Clark Art Institute’s First Sundays Free program offers free admission to the galleries and exhibitions, along with a series of family activities. October’s theme is “Meandering,” in celebration of the Clark’s exhibition Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander.

As a part of the day’s programs, you can visit the Lunder Center’s Hunter Studio to make a found-object sculpture based on Agematsu’s Zips (pocket-sized sculptures); practice calligraphic drawing, a practice Auerbach often uses, and enjoy a guided meditative walk, offered at 1:15 and 3:15 p.m.

Be sure to take in all sights, smells, and feelings of early autumn while s l o w l y meandering the Clark’s grounds. Always open free of charge, the grounds provide miles of walking trails traversing meadows and woodlands in a setting of profound natural beauty.

You can also pick up a copy of the Clark’s Pause and Reflect Self-Guide for a unique look at the permanent collection, with a rich array of works by artists including John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Edgar Degas.

Visitors can see the exhibition that inspired October’s theme, Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander, in the Lunder Center at Stone Hill through October 16. The Clark will offer free admission all day and activities in the Hunter Studio from 1 to 4 p.m.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
