This Friday, leave work early for the beach -- and watch artists Dustin Yellin, Ryan McNamara and more compete in Creative Time's inaugural Sandcastle Competition. Prefer to stay indoors? Con Artist and 154 Smart Clothes are celebrating summer Closing Parties, and The Hole is debuting its Adam Green exhibition. There's also a book launch featuring The Kills and a crash course on art collecting at Norwood. So grab some sunscreen, y'all, cause this week's art scene is just heating up.
