Like a mirror, art reflects the beauty of the world around us, reveals who we truly are, and can contain a lot of naked people. Step into a funhouse of art-mirrors with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-year family/dual membership to the Bronx Museum of the Arts (a $75 value). Membership grants a family living at the same address unlimited admission to the museum and public programs, as well as reserved seating at museum events, two complimentary guest passes, and early invitations to premiere events and programs.
Since 1971, the Bronx Museum of the Arts has amassed a diverse collection of 20th century and contemporary art that reflects the eclectic cultures of the Bronx and New York. Featured exhibits include Paul Strand: The Mexican Portfolio, a collection of 20 gravure plates that represent the artist's involvement with Mexican art and revolutionary politics. And currently running through December 31, 2010, the Yankee Stadiums exhibit commemorates the history of the storied stadium, including the iconic moment when Yankee fans saw the new stadium open after the old one became self-aware and launched itself into space.
The museum facility features a major gallery, event spaces, an outdoor terrace, and an entire floor for educational programs devoted to politics and animals. Unlike the William Henry Harrison presidential library, you can't see it all in one day, so savor the visual abundance at your leisure with today's Groupon to the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
