Last summer we saw a celeb-filled omnibus in the Brooklyn Museum's late Warhol retrospective, gawked at Doug + Mike Starn's architectural craziness on the Met's roof, and had heat wave-induced hallucinations with Charles Burchfield at the Whitney. This year the city's museums have an unprecedented season of big-budget, star-filled blockbuster fare lined up for their galleries—already the Met's Alexander McQueen retrospective set a single-day Costume Institute attendance record. From the multi-million-dollar effects extravaganzas to the quirky indie comedies and the obligatory date-night rom-coms, here are your must-see summer blockbuster exhibitions.
