Art represents the triumph over chaos, just as pulled-pork donuts represent the triumph over dignity. Expand your tastes with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a two-day art pass (a $15 value) to Art City Austin presented by Art Alliance Austin, which takes place on Saturday, April 2 from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. and Sunday, April 3 from 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Children 12 and under are free.
Art City Austin arouses creative senses by capturing the city's creative spirit and turning downtown Austin into a two-day cultural festival showcasing the latest works from painters and sculptors. Festival-goers can stroll through city plazas and green spaces, stopping at booths, temporary art spaces, and manhole covers painted by baseball players who have hit 500 or more home runs. In addition to unlimited masterpiece scoping at the festival, two-day passes also grant patrons free admissions to the Austin Museum of Art and the Blanton Museum of Art.
