Keeping up with contemporary art can be taxing due to limited museum hours, seminars on dadaist theory, and the constantly shifting styles of paint-splattered overalls. Catch up on creative trends with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-year subscription (11 issues) to Art + Auction magazine from BlueDolphin.com (an $80 value).
Art + Auction's glossy, full-color pages deliver detailed analyses of art-market trends, in-depth artist profiles, and reviews of auctions held around the world. For example, the April 2011 issue investigated Berlin's gallery scene, profiled artists Rachel Whiteread and Sonia Delaunay, and described ways to legally protect your investments in art, such as sneaking marble busts into the witness-protection program. A regular "Datebook" feature also helps subscribers plan out their social schedules with a comprehensive list of art fairs, openings, and oil-paintball tournaments.
