Art is seen by the citizen as entertaining, by the politician as useful, and by walls as freeloaders who get all the attention. Give credit where credit is due with today’s Groupon to the Pasadena Museum of California Art, located in the historic Playhouse district. Choose between the following options:

  • For $7, you get two one-day adult admissions (a $14 value).
  • For $25, you get a Studio Level membership, including a personalized membership card and unlimited general admission for the cardholder and one guest (a $50 value).

The Pasadena Museum of California Art condenses the state’s kaleidoscopic palette of creativity into exhibitions dedicated to California art, architecture, and design from 1850 to the present. Current exhibitions include Clayton Brothers: Inside Out, which pays homage to the brothers’ complex narratives and surf-punk aesthetic, and Street Cred: Graffiti Art from Concrete to Canvas, an exploration of Los Angeles street art that ends with an interactive police chase through the galleries.

Guests who wish to sneak a daylong peek at both the current and upcoming exhibitions can opt for the Studio Level membership, good for unlimited visits with one guest. Members procure invites to museum previews and receptions, enjoy a 10% discount at the museum store, and get first-lick privileges on any incoming still-life painting. A rooftop terrace grants picturesque views of the San Gabriel Mountains, and the Kenny Scharf Garage keeps cars entertained with its spray-painted images of spaceships and cartoon aliens.
