Originally created to distract and befuddle delicious animals until early hunters finished inventing firearms, ballet has since evolved into one of humanity's most transcendent art forms. For $15, today's Groupon gets you one Level B mezzanine ticket (a $26 value) to see the Trey McIntyre Project perform on Saturday, April 17, at 8 p.m. at the Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science. Or, for $20, get Level A orchestra seating to the same performance (a $34 value). The performance will take place in the great hall of the Husby Performing Arts Center, an acoustically and optically superior place to witness the scintillations and undulations of the contemporary ballet troupe. Tiered seating in the sweeping, wood-paneled environment ensures visible views for all, while this Groupon's mezzanine seating ensures both sound sight and insightful sound.

When the Joslyn Art Museum opened in 1931, more than 25,000 people lined up to see the exhibits. It had taken three years of construction and $3 million to create the splendid art-deco building, which was inlaid with more than 38 types of marble imported from around the world. The force behind this enormous effort was philanthropist Sarah Joslyn, who had the building built in honor of her late husband. But instead of standing front and center, Sarah quietly mixed in with the crowd. "I am just one of the public," she said to people who recognized her.

Sarah truly viewed the museum as a gift to the people of Omaha. And for more than 80 years, they've cared for it like one. With the 58,000-square-foot addition addition of the Walter & Suzanne Scott Pavilion, a sculpture garden, and other enhancements, the museum has grown with time. Visitors today find more than 11,000 works of art inside, with collections and exhibitions that include pieces of ancient Greek pottery, Renaissance and Baroque paintings by Titian and El Greco, and Impressionist works by Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Claude Monet.

After admiring the peasant portraiture of 19th-century French realist Jules Breton, guests can cartwheel over to a collection of 18th- and 19th-century American artwork, which includes portraits by James Peale and landscape images by Thomas Cole. Pieces from the 20th century from artists such as Grant Wood transition visitors into viewings of more contemporary works or attempts to find a 3-D Magic Eye picture in Jackson Pollock's Galaxy.
