What You'll Get
Art is in the eye of the beholder, whereas swollen retinas are in the eye of the bee holder. Get soul-stung by provocative and powerful art with today's Groupon to The Art Museum at the University of Kentucky.

Membership includes free admission to all ticketed shows, a quarterly newsletter, and discounts on classes, workshops, and museum shop purchases.
- The previous success of the exhibit — which features 221 artifacts and is the most extensive display of Egyptian objects to come to Central Kentucky — points to both the need for spectacular show-stoppers for the arts community and the draw of an ancient culture that is mysterious but accessible. – Mary Meehan, Herald-Leader
- Both the horse exhibits are very good. Andre Pater is beyond amazing. Love him! I never saw anyone paint cattle so I wished I owned that painting! – Deborah H., Facebook

About The Art Museum at the University of Kentucky
The Art Museum at the University of Kentucky showcases more than 4,500 masterpieces including American and European paintings, photographs, and sculpture. Oil and watercolors grace canvases by artists from around the world, including the American impressionist painting Bucks County Winter by Edward Willis Redfield and the Italian Baroque painting Madonna and Child with St. John by Agostino Carracci. The collection’s three-dimensional art forms also span the centuries, with examples of Native American ceremonial robes and a variety of outdoor sculptures that call upon contemporary amalgamations of steel, bronze, and stone. Traveling exhibitions, lecture series, and annual events aim to inspire as well as to create opportunities for patrons to gain new perspectives on how to best arrange a bowl of fruit.
