To avoid last year’s embarrassment of inventing modern art 90 years after the fact, it might do you good to visit an art museum and see what art movements already exist. Marvel and muse among the aesthetically astute with today’s Groupon: for $30, you’ll get a yearlong household membership to both locations of the Austin Museum of Art. Benefits include:
- Unlimited free admission for you plus another household adult and household kiddos
- Invitations to art events and exhibitions
- Discounted and priority registration for education at The Art School
- Invitations to AMOA events, including the Art Ball, Art Treks, and La Dolce Vita
- 10% off tickets to La Dolce Vita food and wine festival
- A 10% discount at the museum store
- AMOA mailings including catalogs and email updates
The former estate of legendary Texan Clara Driscoll, AMOA-Laguna Gloria offers visitors a memorable outing rich in art, history, and nature. Tour intimate and informative exhibits inside the 1916 Italianate-style villa or saunter through the sculpture garden located on the museum’s 12-acre grounds. The AMOA-Downtown, located conveniently at Congress and Ninth Street, houses a wide range of educational programs including gallery tours, performances, and talks, as well as the AMOA Museum Store, where you can purchase books about art, films about art, and art about films about books.
Unlimited admission for you plus another adult (from the same address) gives you an instant activity for spur-of-the-moment dates, impulsive cravings for education, and rainy-day ennui. Head to outings such as La Dolce Vita food and wine festival in October, Art Ball, and Art Treks (day trips to Texas museums and galleries). The more inspired can master a new media with a 10% discount on tuition at The Art School. Both museums are open every day except Mondays and have easy parking options (downtown in the 823 parking garage or meter parking; free parking at the grounds or along 35th Street at Laguna Gloria).
All guests in membership must reside in the same household.
