Need to Get Out of the City? Here Are 5 Art-Themed Day Trips for Summer’s Dog Days

You know it’s road-trip season when the galleries have switched to summer hours, and the streets are empty on weekends, as everyone tries to escape the sweltering city heat. There’s no quicker relief from the dog days of summer than a weekend jaunt outside of the city. And luckily, there is plenty of art to be seen along the way. Here at artnet News, we’ve compiled a list of art-themed day trips originating from five cities across the country: New York, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago.

So gas up, pack a lunch (or overnight bag) and hit the road. Read more about art getaways >>
