Summer is officially in full swing, which means hibernation is over and all the greatest events have begun. Whether you’re feeling adventurous, need something to do with your friends, or you got caught with your night cheese, all of these events will give you a reason to go out and enjoy the art world.
Enjoy some sun, we have a few public art events you should attend where you can get to know some rad muralists. Who knows, you may even recognize some work from other urban landscapes around the world. We also have some gallery shows to share with you that you can’t miss, and if galleries aren’t your thing, then you can see yourself to the Guggenheim in New York where you can view Kevin Beasley’s commissioned performance. Invite your friends, invite your grandma, invite your deli man!
