As winter gathers its full force, the cultural events happening across the country deliver an artistic flurry to combat the cold. Below, we’ve gathered a list of some of the art exhibitions and shows that we think will offer particular warmth in a selection of cities during this snow-filled month.
While CoolSnowGlobes has worked with some of the institutions on the list, others we just admire others from afar. And speaking of: If you’re too far from any of these places, let us know what’s near you, and we’ll add something for you next time. We hope you enjoy—and stay warm!
