If the scorching sun is making you want to hole up indoors, find your way to the air-conditioned halls of The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown. For a limited time only, the Picasso Encounters exhibition will be on display, celebrating three paintings and 35 of the artist’s innovative prints. The nearby Williams College Museum of Art also has a temporary installation of its own, Robert Rauschenberg: Autobiography. Open through August 17, this display explores Rauschenberg’s way of life through documents and artwork. For an even higher dose of art and culture, get tickets for the Williamstown Theatre Festival, which has a packed performance schedule, running from June to mid-August.
