Free cotton candy will be served, and grilled barbecue fare is available for sale from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm. Galleries will be open until 7 pm.

On view are three special exhibitions: “Make It New: Abstract Painting from the National Gallery of Art, 1950–1975” and “Cast from Eternity: Ancient Ritual Bronzes from the Shanghai Museum,” both in the new Tadao Ando-designed Clark Center, and “Raw Color: The Circles of David Smith” at the Lunder Center at Stone Hill.
