Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. View these emotions on canvas with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a one-day pass for January 28, 29, or 30 to the Art Los Angeles Contemporary art fair at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica (an $18 value).

Bring your eye spheres to a collaborative exhibition of contemporary art groups on Friday night, or treat left-out ears to a musical performance by Sun Foot on Saturday.
Art Los Angeles Contemporary
Each year, more than 60 galleries and artists from Los Angeles and the intangible web of the art world beyond flock to Art Los Angeles Contemporary like butterflies in migration. During their stay, they display their colors in Santa Monica's Barker Hangar, which hosts 40,000 square feet of exhibition space with 40-foot ceilings ideal for extra-tall installations or human pyramids made of Shaquille O’Neal sculptures. In addition to paintings and functional furniture from emerging and established artists, Art Los Angeles Contemporary also hosts a programming series of talks, curator-led panel discussions, and film screenings. This year, the exposition will spotlight Ceci n’est pas… Art Between France and Los Angeles, a cultural-exchange program culminating in more than 30 French-American collaborations.
