Works of art, like feelings, are more useful when displayed in the open and not buried uncomfortably inside of stomachs. Allow art to uncover your emotions with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one admission to The Institute of Contemporary Art (up to a $15 value). Youth 17 and under are admitted for free; admission is free for all from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Thursday, and free for families (up to two adults accompanied by children 12 and under) on the last Saturday of each month.

Housed in an architectural wonder overlooking the waterfront, the ICA treats visitors to a compelling collection of contemporary art spanning all variety of modern media. The progressive halls and folded walls of the ICA showcase virtually every outlet for artistic expression, including photography, painting, sculpture, and installations of photographic painted sculptures. With a permanent collection featured alongside constantly changing exhibitions, the museum, like Cher, is constantly evolving and never gets old. Peruse current exhibit The Record, an in-depth sensory immersion into the role vinyl records have played, and continue to play, in the art world. The exhibit highlights the artists who bring records' contributions to tangibility, from Talking Heads front man David Byrne to a pair of 1960s vinyl pants that warble underground punk-pop when donned correctly.

The museum also plays host to performing arts, film and video events, informative lectures and talks, family programs, and World Cup matches throughout the year. Some events are free, and others require a fee, which is discounted for members.
