Summer art shows

Now that it's officially summer, there are a few art shows that are on my to-see list.
First up, the "local" museums I plan to visit...

Salem, MA @ The Peabody Essex Museum
On view through July 18
For my Kennedy fascination...

New York City, NY @ The Met 
On view through August 15
I look forward to the annual Costume Institute exhibitions every year.

New York City, NY @ MoMA
On view through August 30
Not normally known for his drawings, I think this will be an interesting show, delving into the brain and artistic process of Picasso.

Now the shows that I can (sadly) only visit online...

Paris, France @ Le Petit Palais
On view through August 29
Fabulous, I'm sure.

London England @ Tate Modern
On view beginning September 30
Despite learning Gauguin from the worst art history professor (ever) in college, I'd love to see this show.

Are there any art shows you plan to see in your cities, or online-only, this summer that I should add to my list?

Blogging last year: Zipped!



  1. I definitely plan to catch the Moma exhibit for Picasso! He's one of my favorite artists! Enjoy the shows you make it too!!

  2. I would SO love to see the Yves Saint Laurent Retrospective in person - I imagine it would be amazing!! :)

  3. Thanks for sharing these Jaime! I am inspired to look up shows now :)

    Love the Kennedy picture! xx

  4. Oh, these are exhibitions I would LOVE to see...especially the Gaugain and Kennedy and Piccasso...
    We have an exhibition coming over from the V&A to the AGO in Toronto...it;'s the MAHARAJA exhibition...I adore the paintings and costumes which were worn.
    That's not until late November...so if you're in Canada Jaime...come visit!

  5. The Kennedy show would be really cool!

    P.S. There's a giveaway over in my neck of the woods!

  6. what wonderful exhibitions...would have to travel from one to the other, hehe!

  10. i love the tate modern. one of my favorite museums of all time.

    there is an ansel adams exhibit here in phoenix and i am hoping i didn't miss it while we were in thailand!

  11. Will you be traveling to all these places?! I'd love to see The Kennedy's. I like looking at pictures of them on vacation. I can't explain it.

  12. Very cool! I have to hit up some more museums. I was kind of unimpressed by Boston's but whenever I am in NYC I go!

  13. oo, cool. i didn't know about that kennedy show at the peabody essex - i'll have to put that on my list! i didn't have anything on my art/museum list before but i wonder if the ICA has any cool exhibits this summer.

  14. You share my Kennedy obsession?! Can't wait to check that exhibit out either!

  15. ahhh, i love this post, definitely makes me want to go museum hopping. :)
    the met sounds wonderful right about now...

  16. I love the picture of the Kennedys. This sounds so interesting.


  17. that kennedy one sounds interesting. that family has always interested me.

  18. Art shows are so fun! We have another one soon in Pittsburgh!


  19. Oh, what a great idea! I should check out thew exhibits going on in San Francisco this summer-its only about an hour and a half from me. About two years ago in SF I saw an exhibit on YSL that was amazing! It had a ton of his actual designs on display. You never truly know how gorgeous and amazing his work is until you see it right in front of you!

  20. the kennedys!
