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 a one-day admission (a $12 value) to the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach.

The Orange County Museum of Art showcases a wide variety works of art for aesthetic absorption, with a concentration on homegrown Golden State art from the early 20th century to the present day. Gargle with toner and fixer before visiting the museum's recently opened exhibit Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy, an exploration of a modernist master whose mobiles, stabiles, and delicate works inspired seven young artists whose pieces will be on display alongside 30 original Calder sculptures. Or take a respite from studying horseshoe-crab mating rituals in Topeka with the exhibit's participatory space, featuring a reading area, response wall, and a sculpture-building station with yarn, paper, recycled materials, and stardust.

The museum offers free admission to children younger than 12 years old during all regular museum hours (Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.). Admission is also free every second Sunday of the month.

Orange County Museum of Art

Orange County Museum of Art's chief curator, Dan Cameron, takes pride in the artists his state has produced from the 20th century to the present. He and his staff showcase a diverse range of modern and contemporary Californian artists as well as art from around the world in an array of exhibitions and a permanent collection. Each exhibition uncovers a different facet of the art world. Past exhibitions have explored modern art between Picasso and Pollock, the changing language of art and design in the mid-20th century, and works by Ansel Adams and Andy Warhol.

Staffers also immerse visitors in their collections through after-hours events and guided tours of the museum's galleries. They also host events for families, during which kids can make artwork in the style of the exhibited artists or attend monthly shows with short films, music exploration, and live entertainment.

Small but very good, highly recommend... but of course, it does depend on the exhibit which is currently in rotation.
