Analyzing art, like throwing a boomerang into outer space, often lacks a definitive conclusion. Enjoy endless examination with today's Groupon: for $11, you get two tickets to the Berkshires Arts Festival in Great Barrington (up to a $22 value). Each ticket is valid for one entry on one of the following dates: Saturday, July 2, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday, July 3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; or Monday, July 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students are regularly admitted for $5 and children under 10 are admitted free without today's Groupon.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Berkshires Arts Festival enthralls visitors with a wide selection of North American–made arts and crafts, live entertainment, and hands-on workshops. Accompanied by a friend or talking porpoise, peruse booths filled with ceramics, clothing, furniture, glasswork, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paintings, photography, sculpture, woodwork, and found art submerged in ice-cold dunk tanks. Mingle with independent artists as the sounds of live music fill the air, or participate in interactive workshops focused around pottery shaping, furniture building, blacksmithing, and building a Large Hadron Collider in your backyard.
