Phoenix Art Museum's massive Antonio Berni show is a must-see.

It's easy to feel sluggish during the Phoenix summers, but that's no excuse for becoming a total shut-in. You know what museums and galleries have (in addition to really great art)? Air conditioning. And if that's not enough to get you excited, the artwork will be.

To help you out, we've compiled a list of our top six must-see exhibitions taking place across the Valley over the next few months. So get out there and see some art.

6. "Antonio Berni: Juanito and Ramona"
Phoenix Art Museum
Now through September 21

The multi-media Argentinian artist Antonio Berni might be relatively unknown here in the States, but in Latin America he is thought to be one of the most important artists of the 20th century. This incredible exhibition shows us why. The depth and breadth of the artwork in this show is incredible; it's the first retrospective of the artist's work since the 1960s. Most of the art in this show pulls from a series Berni began in the late '50s that told the story of Argentinian life through the narrative of two fictional characters: Juanito Laguna and Ramona Montiel. The exhibition as a whole is beautiful, but we were particularly taken with the larger sculptural work and the printing plates in the back half of the gallery.
