My only comment was that I was a little disappointed there weren't prints of some of the artwork in the gift shop! There was one painting my friend really liked and wanted to get for her house and they didn't have any prints!

What You'll Get


Without frequent exposure to art, viewers may struggle to discern whether they’re looking at an Impressionist masterpiece or out of a heavily smudged window. Start your eye training with this Groupon.

Figuring Color, the museum’s newest exhibit, explores the connection between color and body in approximately 65 works from four artists. The exhibit begins with a consideration of surface, with Kathy Butterly’s brilliantly glazed sculptures employing flesh-tone peaches, pinks, and browns to explore the concept of surface as skin. After seeing Blood by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, a large-scale sculpture that resembles a crimson beaded curtain, visitors encounter the paintings of Sue Williams, which play with line, shape, and color to investigate the idea of insides. In a room dedicated to memory rests Gonzalez-Torres’s sculpture Untitled Loverboys, a portrait of his deceased partner and himself comprised of 355 pounds of unwrapped candy—the combined weight of the two men. Guests may take a piece of the candy with them, metaphorically taking a piece of the memory itself, before entering a final room that explores joy in an explosion of color and exuberant lines contributed by all four artists.<p>
