Actor Val Kilmer (in town for his show "Citizen Twain") and Nasher director Jeremy Strick view the Mabry exhibition.

We’re in that magical time of year when you can comfortably be outside. So save the air-conditioned museums for July and check out this selection of prime venues:

A Sculpture Garden for the Masses L.A.-based artist Nathan Mabry brings a unique perspective to the Nasher Sculpture Center’s outdoor garden with a small exhibition of large-scale sculptures. One dynamic new referential piece, Two Vessels (Unpacked), was created specifically for the museum. (Through July 7, Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora St.; 214-242-5100)

A Frisco Treasure Trove Don’t be dubious about the Texas Sculpture Garden’s office-park location. Here, art collector Craig Hall has created a surprisingly intimate showcase for contemporary sculpture made by Texas artists such as Edward Lee Hendricks, whose 2004 IX and 2004 X are modern takes on the old-fashioned windmill. (Texas Sculpture Garden, 6801 Gaylord Parkway, Frisco)

Acres of Sculpture At the Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden in North Dallas, four wooded acres serve as the backdrop for elegant works by artists including Charles Umlauf and David Hayes. Fountains and water accents add to the relaxing environment. (Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden, 6616 Spring Valley Rd.; 972-239-2441)
