The Westmoreland Museum of American Art's collection of American and Pennsylvanian art orbits around works created during the mid-18th to the mid-20th centuries and also incorporates newer work by contemporary artists such as Joyce Werwie Perry into its sophisticated company. Today's deal lets museumgoers choose between individual ($40) and family ($60) memberships. All members benefit from confidence-boosting access to exclusive events and exhibition previews, as well as discounts on museum classes and gift-shop goods. Art aficionados flying solo will snag two passes to Art on Tap ($14), including two drink vouchers to transform a sedate happy hour into a cavalcade of beer swigging, wine sipping, music enjoying, and awkward acquaintance leaning. Family members receive twice as many passes and vouchers ($28) to facilitate double dates and imaginary-friend fieldtrips. A family membership also includes one Second Saturday Studios class ($20) for favored firstborns to create fridge-ready self-portraits, collages, and paintings. Both deals get you a $5 voucher to the gift shop to grab Scenes of Industry posters ($7) with which to plaster the bedroom ceiling, encouraging highly productive REM cycles.
