When the heat gets to you, try a museum tour. DAM has their Marvelous Mud exhibit on display, and Renaissance Cities is still available. Combine the two and you can easily spend 3 hours in welcome cool halls where you can discover the art of now and then. Taking my young family members, since they know I paint "flowers", we played a game finding all the botanical images contained in these offerings. One sharp-eyed grandnephew found the Columbine in a Renaissance painting. Another found a garden in a huge ceramic installation. And still another botanical find popped up in some amazing tapestries.
