If you and a friend are considering going to the Brooklyn Museum—or seeing Deborah Harry—anytime in the next year, you’d be wise to spend $35 to snag today’s Groupon: a one-year Family and Friends membership to the Brooklyn Museum. Since admission to the Brooklyn Museum is normally $10 per person, if you and your art-loving friend go just twice in the next year, today’s Groupon more than pays for itself. This membership is good for two adults plus up to four kids under the age of 18.

If you’re not considering going to the Brooklyn Museum this year, perhaps you have yet to be touched by art in your life. In which case, take our advice, and let art touch you in places you’d never expect. There is nothing like the feeling you get after staring past the surface of a canvas, when it begins to subtly unveil itself to you, finally standing before you naked, warmly whispering timeless wisdoms into your ear.

Become a member with today’s deal and also gain admittance to the member preview and reception for the upcoming exhibition, Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present, Thursday, October 29, 6 p.m.–10 p.m. Get a sneak peek at the exhibition, wine and dine, and dance to the beats of DJ and photographer Josh Cheuse. The exhibition comes to glamrific life with a special performance by Blondie. Redeem your membership soon after getting your Groupon to get your invitation to this event. Space is subject to availability.

Your membership includes lots of VIP privileges including, but not limited to:

  • free general admission for two adults and four children (under the age of 18) to the Museum for one year.
  • invitations to two additional members-only previews and receptions throughout the year.
  • free rental of audio guides for permanent-collection exhibitions.
  • 10% discount at the Museum Café and Shop.
  • advance ticketing for all Target First Saturdays programs and events.
  • discount and early registration privileges for the Museum’s Gallery/Studio classes for adults and children.
  • free tickets to bimonthly Creative Art Making classes (quantities limited).
  • full access to the Museum’s Libraries and Archives.
  • half-price tickets ($5) for the Museum’s Arty Facts program.

In case you didn’t know, art is more fulfilling with a companion, so grab some art-curious, culture-hungry, and special-exhibition-lusting friends and take advantage of the most fabulous culture Brooklyn has to offer.

Reviews

Time Out lists Who Shot Rock & Roll among the big fall shows: > * By examining the greats who photographed the greats, Brooklyn Museum’s medley of performance photos, portraits and behind-the-scenes snapshots promises a revamped perspective on the personalities and personae of rock legends. Don’t miss Albert Watson’s mash-up of Mick Jagger and a jaguar. – Time Out

The Brooklyn Museum is a favorite cultural gem for Citysearchers, who enjoy visiting the extensive collection again and again: > * Hidden away in Brooklyn is one of New York’s finest institutions. The Brooklyn Museum boasts a spectacular Egyptian collection, wonderful standing exhibits, imaginative shows…all without taking the train into the city–and just steps from the Botanic Gardens. – jessicabranch > * The Brooklyn Museum is still pleasantly uncrowded compared to the Met. And it should be compared to the Met: If it were in any other city in the country, it would undoubtably [sic] be one of the chief cultural assets. – SimonSpelling

Awesomuseums

If there’s one slander that the Entertainment Lobby has tried to spread repeatedly, it’s that museums are boring, irrelevant places where no television-owning child should be forced to go. Right? Wrong. That misconception ends today with your invitation to the Who Shot Rock exhibit, followed by an actual concert from Blondie. What other steps are museums taking to remind people how cool they are?
