David Smith's sculptures are on display this summer at the Clark Art Institute in an exhibit called 'Raw Color.'

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — This summer's David Smith show at the Clark Art Institute explores how the 20th century sculptor brought color to sculpture.

It also shows how he brought practical skills to the art world.   "While we were installing these pieces, one of the riggers who was putting them down said, 'It's nice to actually work with these big sculptures that a real welder put together,' " Clark curator David Breslin said. "You're always afraid of having something happen when you're installing art.

"Bleu!" is presented by the Italian theater company Compagnia TPO, whose website bills itself as "interactive theater for children." At the opening show on Wednesday, July 2, it was indeed theater in that it clearly told a story. But unlike the theatrical stories most children are used to hearing, this one was told through music and movement, not words.

"Bleu!" narrates the meeting of two characters: a sailor and

If a seller places their property for sale on the market they absolutely want to sell.

Right?

Maybe.

Hiring a realtor, putting out the "for sale" sign, placing a "multiple listing service" entry, requesting that the agent do serious advertising and expecting the agent to schedule open houses all are part of placing a home on the market.   

Right?

Absolutely.

All of the above activities indicate the owner wants to sell the property. Now comes the Catch 22.  The seller "must" have a certain price for their property. The individual reasons for selling a property are as diverse as the number of fish in the sea. A few of the more common reasons

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Trustees of Reservations will host a new music series this summer to heighten the experience of land, nature and architecture.

It’s no secret that the cost of sending just one child to college for four years can be staggering.

The College Board Advocacy and Policy Center reported that over the past decade college tuition and fees have rapidly increased. However, this year the average increase is smaller than it has been in the past. The table below shows how average college costs would continue to increase at national average annual inflation rates.
