Judging from Leonardo da Vinci's sketches of a rudimentary coffee table and the glossy 8"x10" original of Van Gogh's The Starry Night, brilliant artists have always dreamed of being featured in magazines. Fulfill the masters' aesthetic climax with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a 12-month subscription to Nashville Arts Magazine (a $45 value).
Tucked inside a vibrant, aesthetically conceived cover every month, the pages of Nashville Arts Magazine exhibit the diverse works and creative talent from Nashville's artistic community with well-crafted reporting and expert photography. In each issue, brief spotlights highlight new works from Volunteer State artists, a quick complement to the magazine's longer features, which examine everything from photography to literature to popsicle-stick puppetry. Nashville Arts Magazine's profiles feature both local and national artists, and readers have enjoyed an intimate afternoon with Tony Bennett in New York City and introspectively looked at the aesthetic inspiration of Jennifer Cole, the matriarch of the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission. On its website, Nashville Arts’ online extras complement the magazine's printed pages with archived articles and bonus videos of featured artists talking about their artwork and/or soothingly whispering to their artwork.
