What You'll Get
Without frequent exposure to art, viewers may struggle to discern whether they’re looking at an impressionist masterpiece or out a heavily smudged window. Start your eye training with today’s Groupon to Lux Art Institute in Encinitas. Guests under 21 are always admitted free of charge. Choose from the following options:
- For $5, you get two museum admissions (up to a $10 value).
- For $25, you get a one-year individual museum membership (a $50 value).
- For $50, you get a one-year family museum membership (a $100 value).<p>
Lux Art Institute engages visitors in the creative process with insightful glimpses into resident artists’ studios, interactive discussions, and exhibits featuring finished works. In an effort to make art more accessible, Lux demolishes the walls and moats between internationally recognized artists and their audiences to spotlight the art process from start to finish. Resident artists prepare commissioned works in the open, sparking visitors’ imaginations with intimate processes that then culminate in exhibits of finished works. General-admission tickets redeemed during studio days can be used again for re-entry to see the final outcomes of artistic endeavors or folded into origami turkeys for paper-doll Thanksgivings.
Members can come and go freely during regular museum hours, as well as evenings on the third Wednesday of each month, when art comes to life and flirts with the crowd during after-hours Lux@Night minglers. Family memberships extend admission to up to two adults and their children, as well as discounts on the facility’s kids’ camps and classes. All memberships include the Lux quarterly newsletter and invitations to special events such as residency openings and sculpture-eating contests.
