Museums facilitate the ability for the past to reach into the present, much like the way fingers made from taffy facilitate the ability for hands to reach into lofty cookie jars. Get a grip on art with today’s Groupon to the LaGrange Art Museum. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get an individual membership (a $40 value).
- For $30, you get a family membership (a $60 value).
With a permanent collection of more than 440 works by artists from down the street and around the globe, the LaGrange Art Museum educates community members and inspires cultural awareness and innovation through exhibitions, lectures, and special events. Though daily admission is free to the public, membership enhances visitors’ artistic experiences with advance notice of exhibitions and gallery talks, as well as invitations to special events, discounts on museum art classes, or preferred sleeping-bag choice at the curator's next slumber party. Groupon holders can fly solo with an individual membership, or snag a family membership, which unlocks access for every blood-related individual currently residing in your home. Explore the permanent collection's multimedia wonders, or stroll through special exhibits such as the Legends of the Printmaking Workshop, which celebrates the centennial birthday of innovative printmaker Will Barnet with highlights of both his work and that of his team of printmaking horses.
In addition to quenching artistic thirsts with exhibits, members can also cram craniums during discounted museum classes and workshops. Past classes explored alternative crafts such as pottery and fiber arts, and single-day master classes, in partnership with Serenbe’s Fine Arts Workshop, hone in on specific skills such as abstraction and live-model drawing.
LaGrange Art Museum
The staff at LaGrange Art Museum are focused on collecting and preserving works of art, right down to the building itself. The museum is housed in a shining example of Victorian architecture from the 1890s, which first served as the Troup County Jail and later the LaGrange Daily News. Today, it houses the museum's special exhibits and permanent collection, which includes 440 works that primarily focus on southern American art from the 20th century.
