WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Malcolm Butler's Super Bowl interception had the feeling of the fantastical so it's appropriate that the Clark Art Institute's winning payout would be just as dramatic.

"Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast," the prize of the #MuseumBowl between the Seattle Art Museum and the Clark was described Friday by Richard Rand, the institute's Robert and Martha Berman Lipp Senior Curator of Paintings and Sculpture, as "extremely theatrical and mostly imaginary."

In the spirit of cheerful cross-state posturing in such contests, the Clark had found a willing a partner in the Seattle museum for a gamble of fine art against the prowess of

I suspect there will be a spate of movies custom made for baby boomers as they proceed into the sexa- and septuagenarian periods of their lives. They will nurture and extoll the virtues of this mixed blessing that's certainly better than the alternative. Call them the Dick and Jane films for golden-agers: i.e. — See Dick have a hip replacement; see Spot sympathize. Hopefully, most will be as entertaining as writer-director Dan Fogelman's "Danny Collins."

Supplying both affirmation and eloquently imparted nostalgia, the film chooses for its

Trying to figure out the renegade ethos that Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto and his "team" are trying to exemplify in the frenetically action-packed "Furious 7" leaves me at a loss. Still, I'm going to have a go at it anyway ... but not for diehard fans of this hot-rodding franchise that has skidded miserably off course. Devotees couldn't care less what this O.G. (Old Gangsta) thinks about their choice of entertainment. Nope, this is in the service of auto enthusiasts and anyone who feels being well-rounded means having at least a tangential

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The New England Patriots weren't the only big winners on Super Bowl Sunday. Malcolm Butler's last-minute interception of Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson's pass also resulted in a victory for … the Clark Art Institute.

While the Patriots' dramatic victory brought Super Bowl rings to the team, it also brings a very special loan to the Clark. As a result of a friendly rivalry between the Clark and the Seattle Art Museum, Albert Bierstadt's epic painting "Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast" will spend its summer in the Berkshires.

The painting will be unveiled in the Clark's galleries at 1 p.m. on Friday,

Warning! Do not see director Erik Greenberg Anjou's mouthwateringly delicious documentary, "Deli Man," without planning to immediately follow it up with a visit to your favorite Jewish delicatessen. Failing to do so would surely be far more injurious to your health and well-being than the artery-clogging ecstasies you will therein imbibe.

Make it a theme day ... like the film, a glorious celebration of a cultural tradition that came to thrive in the New World. Now faced with changing realities, it is proudly championed by a dying
