There’s no time like summertime for an arts road-trip, and American museums have a lot to offer this summer. While the weather’s heating up, the best place to cool-off is the air-conditioned comfort of an art museum. We’re heading to Chicago for Grant Wood and Tom Torluemke; but we're also excited about 20+ other exhibitions featuring A&O favorites, (and there’s certainly more we missed). There's Agnes Martin in Los Angeles; R. Crumb in Seattle; Robert Indiana in Indianapolis; Kehinde Wiley in Richmond, VA; Shirin Neshat in Washington, D.C.; and Lucas Samaras in NYC. For a full rundown, take a look at the exhibitions on our calendar. Don’t miss this summer's art of the religious imagination, and we'll look for you in Chicago!
