    As the summer weather starts to heat up, there are often very few places in the city to escape the oppressive heat. You could stay in your apartment, locked away for the entire season next to your AC unit with your computer, or you could make a mad dash out of your door to somewhere else with central air. Seeing as how it is all we ever think about, we’d suggest heading out through the heat to an art museum. Here’s a short list of upcoming exhibitions we think will activate your brain while you do your best to cool off your brow:
