If art is in the eye of the beholder, then museums should offer eye drops at every exit in order to flush out errant brush hairs. Behold art more artfully with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a family membership to the California Center for the Arts, Escondido (a $100 value).
Throughout its 12-acre arts complex, with more than 9,000 feet of performance space, the California Center for the Arts intersperses a variety of mediums and disciplines with the overarching aim of promoting community building. The museum's three visual-art galleries and sculpture court have housed more than 75 exhibitions since 1994, including interactive exhibits on going "green" that feature tips from crocodiles and the Wicked Witch of the West. Currently, Patricia Patterson's exhibition Here and There, Back and Forth mystifies museum-goers with theatrical installations and painted snapshots. Along with free admission to the museum for two adults and up to four children, family memberships include priority seating and presale tickets to performances, invitations to preview events, and free admission for two adults to the Art & Intrigue show.
