This Saturday marks the first official day of summer, and whether you've been hiding under air conditioned shelter for months or are still praying for a day you can bust out the denim shorts, one thing is for certain: Summer art exhibitions have arrived!
This year's crop of summer-fresh art shows is as wonderfully diverse, innovative and visually hypnotic as we could hope for. We're pleased to find an artistic horizon full of group shows and solo exhibitions that diversify the museum experience and poke holes in the singular art historical narrative that's grown so hopelessly obsolete. This year's stellar museum shows explore contemporary Latin American art, female modernist photographers, an Indian Cubist painter, and a female painter known to "paint like a man." There's also an exhibition dedicated to queer iconography, children's imaginations and African American paper artworks.
Get ready to wipe the sweat off your forehead and head to your local art viewing establishment, because art lovers know the best way to enjoy a sunny day is getting blasted by AC in the presence of groundbreaking art.
