Like a mirror, art reflects the beauty of the world around us, reveals who we truly are, and can contain a lot of naked people. Step into a funhouse of art-mirrors with today's Groupon: for $5, you get one single-day admission ticket to the The Mint Museum (a $10 value), which can be used at the Randolph Road and Uptown locations. Each single-day admission is actually valid for 48 hours, allowing ample time to visit both locations.
The Mint Museum houses works of classic and contemporary art from all four corners of the rectangular prism that is Earth. The collection contains American, African, and Asian art; historic fashion and costume, ceramic, contemporary art and craft and design. Current attractions include a recently acquired portrait by John Singleton Copley, classic and modern costumes by Chanel and Gianni Versace, and sketches drawn by public-works officials in their spare time. Other crafty and designy exhibits feature furniture, glasswork, handicraft design, and studio craft from as early as the nineteenth century. Both locations also host major national and international exhibitions and feature curator tours and lectures.
