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 to Artspace, located in the historic Sanders Ford building. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a family membership to Artspace, which includes all family members living at the same mailing address (a $60 value).
- For $20, you get an individual membership to Artspace (a $40 value).
Artspace invites aspiring and accomplished art aficionados to explore its open, interactive oasis of studio exhibitions and educational programming. Inside the 30,000-square-foot facility, stroll past the public workspaces of 35 artists showcasing their efforts in all stages of creative germination. Guests can chat with artists about their work, wearing a bed-sheet toga in an attempt to earn a spot as a muse. Three ever-changing galleries feature a rotating cast of materials crafted from a variety of media by local, national, and international eye dazzlers. Although entrance is regularly free, membership offers a variety of perks and helps support the nonprofit institution's expression-affirming undertakings.
After a paint-splattered initiation, membership will earn you access to velvet-roped goings on, such as the June 3 members-exclusive event that will preview the Artspace Printmakers exhibition in the Upfront Gallery. Members can also take advantage of a 10% discount on gift-shop purchases, a subscription to the Artspace bimonthly newsletter, and exclusive mailings with up-to-the-moment Artspace info. Discounts on youth and adult classes open up opportunities such as life drawing sessions, which allow emerging artists to render real human figures without dipping models by their hair into warm wax.
