Find out what's cool this summer in Bloomington like this competitor who chows down on an ice cream sandwich at this "Thursdays at Boxcar" event.

It’s summer time, but that doesn’t mean things slow down in the arts world. This week we’ll offer several options to help you beat the heat.

First, enjoy the thrill of the hunt as we embark on the The Alliance of Bloomington Museums’ 2010 Summer Quest.

Then check out the IU Summer Music Festival. We’ll get the scoop from a group of music students taking part in the performances.

And finally, the Dalai Lama’s most recent visit to Bloomington brought hundreds of visitors seeking his words of wisdom. And while it’s a frequent pit stop for His Holiness, Bloomington is also home to a fair share of Buddhist art. Megan Meyer explores this hidden Bloomington gem.

That’s all coming up on Artworks.
