The Upcoming Art That’s Worth Your While
It hasn’t exactly been “leisurely stroll weather” lately, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be anytime soon…
But that shouldn’t stop you from making the most of the time you’ve still got to spend indoors. So, we’ve rounded up some of the finest exhibitions and gallery shows opening in the next few months across the globe for your non-alfresco leisurely strolling pleasure.
Here’s how to make the most of your remaining indoor months:
