  • The Rothko Chapel
    The 14 massive purple-black murals by Russian-born American artist Mark Rothko that fill the cavernous space at Rothko Chapel don't just contribute to the building's name, but also to its nature. "Stepping back, waves of subtle color difference appear across the broad surfaces—leading to an unmistakable impression of physical depth," says NPR's Pat Dowell about staring into one of the colorful canvases. The experience is often a transformative one, creating within some viewers the sensation of gazing into infinity. Commissioned by John and Dominique de Menil and designed with the input of Mark Rothko himself, Rothko Chapel was dedicated in 1971 as an independent, intimate non-denominational sanctuary. Since then, its renown has only grown; it now occupies a coveted spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Outside the Chapel, Broken Obelisk by Barnett Newman serves as a starkly elegant memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And yet, for all of its inscrutable beauty, the chapel is also a place of action—a value echoed in the chapel's mission statement. Throughout the year, public programs including concerts, storytelling, lectures, and guided meditation tackle issues of injustice and human struggle. The Chapel serves as a place for a range of interfaith services for religious communities in search of space, hosting everything from holy days and spiritual celebrations to memorial services and wedding ceremonies. Groupon Celebrates Pride Month Over the last 50 years, the gay-rights movement in America has overcome tremendous obstacles to become a powerful voice for inclusion and diversity. Even as it has grown, the movement—like Groupon—is local at heart, and we applaud the commitment to real change that improves everyday lives. At Groupon, we are happy to add our voices to those celebrating PRIDE, their achievements as a social movement and a continued march to equality for the LGBT community. Plus, we love a chance to dig that rainbow wig out of storage. This month—and throughout the year—we salute our merchants and customers who support PRIDE and all efforts that promote dignity, respect, and equal opportunity. We're highlighting these merchants' deals with a special badge to show Groupon's pride in working with people who share our values.

  • Houston Center for Photography
    Houston Center for Photography opened in 1981 as a small photography organization and studio. Over the years, it grew into a large exhibition gallery and school, an information hub for professionals, aspiring photographers, and the public alike. Members of the public can browse the exhibition gallery for free and get their fill of contemporary photographs. Additionally, HCP offers guided tours of the gallery, which give tour-goers insight into what the artist was thinking and how many Funyuns they were snacking on while creating their piece. Students at HCP can learn how to become better photographers themselves through more than 300 photography classes and workshops that take place throughout the year. These range from photography basics for beginners to master classes taught by renowned photographers six times a year.

  • The Menil Collection
    John and Dominique de Menil began collecting art in the 1940s, shortly after they had relocated from France to the United States. It didn't take long for the couple to amass nearly 16,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and rare books. Tired of tripping over Byzantine statues on the way to the kitchen, the de Menils decided to share their collection with the world. The result is The Menil Collection, which opened in 1987 and has since become a fixture of Houston's Museum District. Here, visitors can browse priceless artworks and artifacts with origins that span the globe. With its minimalistic exterior and sweeping stretches of glass, the building itself is also something of a masterpiece. This is no accident?Dominque de Menil made sure that its design allowed for plenty of natural light to enhance visitors' experience and help the artworks grow big and strong.

  • Trolley Pub Houston
    The ability to multitask is prerequisite for boarding Trolley Pub Houston?s vehicles. As guests socialize and sip their own libations aboard the trolley, they must also power it?by pedaling. The trolley hosts special events, mixer nights, and dinner tours, which include stops at local bars and restaurants and offer views of Midtown?s parks and Victorian-style homes. The pub-crawls, however, are the most popular. During these tours, riders pedal to a handful of local bars, such as Mongoose versus Cobra, Pub Fiction, and Nouveau Antique Art Bar, where they enjoy exclusive food and drink specials.
