Art is in the eye of the beholder, whereas swollen retinas are in the eye of the bee holder. Get soul-stung by provocative and powerful art with today's Groupon: for $6, you get one adult admission to Montclair Art Museum and 10% off any item at the Museum Store (a $12 value). The museum is located in downtown Montclair on Mountain Avenue. The Montclair Art Museum specializes in both American and Native American art, exhibiting the parallel artistic traditions in an attempt to explore their symbiotic evolution, without resorting to carbon dating or comparative specimen studies. The downtown location makes the museum an ideal stop for a midday art break, an afternoon art excursion, or an evening date with a friend named Art. Upcoming and current exhibitions include:
- Living for Art: The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection (September 24–January 2, 2011)
