Like a mirror, art reflects the beauty of the world around us, reveals who we truly are, and, when broken, brings seven years of bad luck. Tread softly through a funhouse of art-mirrors with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a one-year dual/family membership for up to four people at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (a $100 value), on Camp Bowie Boulevard.
Founded in 1961, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art boasts a wide-ranging permanent collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures that break from Hollywood tradition by staying dead at night. Exhibitions are displayed on a rotating basis and include the upcoming The First 50 Years, which will commemorate the museum's first half century as an authoritative art stockpiler, and the Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision, which rolls into town on February 26 to celebrate the iconic landscape paintings of such visionaries as Frederic Church, Thomas Cole, and Asher B. Durand.
The dual/family membership also gets you access to exclusive members-only exhibition previews, discounts on lectures, workshops, and museum store merchandise. You'll also receive a complimentary subscription to the museum's award-winning magazine, Program, as well as reciprocal admission and store discounts at more than 100 participating museums in North America.
- If you like the art of Frederick Remington or C.M. Russell, you MUST make the pilgrimage to the Amon Carter Museum - they have the best collection! – Linda P., Yelp
- What amazed me was their collection of American photography. Wow! It's a pretty important collection nationally and they own the estates of several photographer, like, Eliot Porter, Karl Struss and Nell Dorr. It was impressive. – lillypondDallas, TripAdvisor
