The Clark Art Institute's new galleries will be bathed in sunlight - even those at below grade.

WILLIAMSTOWN Mass. — It is unfortunate that the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute did not have its grand opening scheduled for this weekend instead of July 4: The summer solstice was a day tailor-made to enjoy the Clark’s new galleries.

The Clark’s new galleries and refurbished 1955 building are designed to maximize the use of natural light. Fortunately, there are plenty of long days -- even if it's not the longest day -- left this summer to take it all in.

Anyone who has been to the Stone Hill Center since its debut in 2008 knows how
