True works of art inspire onlookers, stir critics, and confuse picture frames that have awoken from a nap to find a velvet Elvis living within them. Fill your inner art-lover with today's Groupon: for $5, you get one admission to Marking the Past/Shaping the Present: The Art of Willis "Bing" Davis at The Dayton Art Institute. The Dayton Art Institute, in conjunction with the University of Dayton, presents a retrospective of nationally lauded artist Willis Davis, a former student of The School of The Dayton Art Institute and the recently crowned 2010 Yeck Visiting Artist. The exhibition will include photographs, masks, ceramics, and oil pastels crafted by Davis, as well as an accompanying full-color and scratch-and-not-sniff catalogue. Museum wanderers also gain admission to DAI's sister exhibition 100 Years of African-American Art: The Arthur Primas Collection, which features 69 works from significant African-American artists. This Groupon expires January 30, 2011.
