Sight, the workhorse of the five senses, puts in too many hours keeping man from falling in manholes. Reward the most overworked sense with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of original art prints and canvases from Artist Spot.
Artist Spot plasters walls with its immense array of vibrant paintings, photographs, and drawings from emerging artists, which are reproduced as prints ($25+) and gallery-wrapped canvases ($75+). Click on the Discover an Artist tab to snag pieces by photographer and graphic artist Charlie Tourtellotte or talented contemporary, conceptual, and abstract artist Kellyann Gilson Lyman, whose large-scale creations have graced the walls of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the San Francisco Convention Plaza. Most art can be printed or wrapped in several sizes and browsed by subject, such as architecture, landscapes, and nature or by medium, including photographs and watercolors that can turn living rooms into museums with couches where friends and family love to lounge.
To further support up-and-coming artists and the local community, the Artist Spot spotlights a new artist every week and donates $5 from every purchase to CoachArt, a nonprofit organization that provides free art and athletic lessons to children and adolescents suffering from chronic illnesses. Artist Spot's substantial selection should leave purchasers confident that they'll find a piece of artwork to suit their aesthetic needs and the company's donation to a charitable organization will make walls feel good about their contribution to society. Although shipping is not included with this Groupon, all prints and canvases ship at a flat rate of $15.
