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 $10, you get two tickets to the 50 Masterpieces of Italian Baroque Painting exhibition at The Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science (a $20 value).
The Brogan Museum features visual arts, science exploration, and humanities education. In collaboration with the prestigious Pinacoteca di Brera, or Art Gallery of Brera, The Brogan Museum will offer art and history buffs a rare opportunity to view 50 priceless baroque paintings from the Lombardy region of Italy. These pieces date from the middle of the 16th century to the end of the 18th century, and many of the paintings have never been exhibited in the United States or strapped into the front seat of a rollycoaster. With a value approaching 25 million Euros (about $36.5 million U.S.), this exhibit, which is sponsored by the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities, marks one of the most significant partnerships between Italy and America since the invention of spaghetti-topped hot dogs.
The exhibit ends July 24, but this Groupon expires July 1.
