(June 30-July 5) ICE COLD If you're looking to beat the heat, they're keeping it ice cold at Hendrick Avercamp: The Little Ice Age, on display for one last week at the National Gallery of Art on the Mall. The Dutch landscape artist's 17th century scenes feature ice skating, sleigh rides and outdoor games on frozen canals, promising to condition your air and jog your memory back to a time when cold weather shut down the city.

(July 1) BICYCLEGENDS And if you wouldn't mind seeing someone else in the hot seat, there's no better opportunity than Chasing Legends, screening tomorrow night at the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse on Columbia Pike. You can watch as the wheels go round and round, in this documentary that follows the pro peloton at the 2009 Tour de France.

(June 30-November 28) MASTERPIECES FROM THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC Meanwhile, Washington's Freer Gallery of Art gets out its finest China through late November in Masterpieces of Chinese Painting on the National Mall. This place setting spans a millennium, while tracing the development of Chinese painting over the generations.­­­­­
