What You'll Get


Art has been with us since the first caveman painted a bison on a wall and the first cave-surrealist painted a mustache on it. Hunt down some art with this GrouponLive deal to the The Annual: 2012 exhibition at the National Academy Museum. For $12, you get two tickets for entrance on any day through April 29 (up to a $24 value). The exhibit is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Children younger than 12, National Academy members, and students are admitted for free.

Drawn from the National Academy's members and the younger artists they've invited, the pieces at The Annual: 2012 plunge patrons into a wide cross section of work from established and emerging artists, including painting, sculpture, architecture, and video. Ellen Altfest's The Leg presents viewers with a nearly photorealistic vision of human anatomy, blurring the line between portraiture, still life, and takeout menus from tiger restaurants. Architectural studies by the likes of Jeanne Gang, Laurence Booth, and Rafael Viñoly draw out the experiential as well as the aesthetic aspects of their structures, and video installations by Joan Jonas, Carrie Mae Weems, and Kate Gilmore trace the medium's evolution through three generations and the casualty-ridden conflicts of the VHS versus Betamax wars. The exhibition takes place in the Academy's stately Beaux Arts mansion, creating an electric juxtaposition of gilded-age elegance and cutting-edge artwork.

Though the National Academy Museum offers discounts to students and seniors, this Groupon offers the best deal available for most customers.
