Art involves creativity and a release of inner emotions, unlike Latin, which involves rote memorization and stifling emotions through three years of law school. Enjoy magnum opuses instead of magna cartas with this Groupon.
$9 for One Admission to the Art Institute of Chicago (Up to $18 Value)
Stepping through the doors of the Art Institute of Chicago can be a breathtaking experience, and not only because of the exquisite architecture under its high ceilings, such as marble staircases; the Institute houses thousands of works of art from all over the world, works spanning five millennia of human creativity. Guests can take a miniature world tour—without becoming an ant and crawling across a globe—by exploring the Institute's collections, which include new sectors dedicated to African and South Asian art. Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte -- 1884 and Gustave Caillebotte's Paris Street; Rainy Day draw visitors into the expansive Impressionist collection, with works by artists including Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Mary Cassatt. A two-story modern wing displays remarkable works by European and American artists. Visitors can also take in traveling exhibitions such as Light Years: Conceptual Art and the Photograph, 1964–1977, running through March 11. Exclusive to Chicago, the exhibit explores the emergence of photography in the world of contemporary art and includes works by Eastern European artists rarely shown in the U.S.
Children under the age of 14 and Art Institute of Chicago members are admitted for free, and Illinois residents are admitted for free the first and second Wednesday of every month.
