Art museum exhibitions always instill wonder in children who have become bored with their own toy chests. Discover a body of knowledge with today's Groupon to the Fiery Pool: The Maya and the Mythic Sea exhibit at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth.
With more than 90 artifacts on display, Fiery Pool: The Maya and the Mythic Sea offers new, exciting interpretations of the Mesoamerican civilization. Head to the Kimbell Art Museum's architecturally renowned building and browse the Mayans' fascinating carved stone monuments, artifacts crafted from jade and gold, and sculpted figurines. From the shell-and-quartz carving of a frog to an intricately painted plate with the Mayan maize god, the Fiery Pool exhibit explores the Mesoamerican's spiritual relationship with the sea, intriguing both anthropologic buffs and those who believe other cultures only exist in their ancient-society-on-the-bottom yogurt cups. Designed by American architect Louis I. Kahn, the museum's subtle use of space and materials, along with its inventive use of natural light enhances the enjoyment of the art.
The museum offers half-price admission on Tuesday and Friday evenings, meaning two tickets only cost $12 at those times–however, this Groupon can be used at any time, making it the most versatile option available.
