Art can portray the world's most complex subjects: the passion of love, the horrors of war, and the despair of fruit waiting to be eaten. Hold a mirror to nature with this Groupon: for $35, you get a family membership plus a $20 gift-shop coupon to Chazen Museum of Art (a $70 value).
Opening its doors in 1970, the UW-Madison's Chazen Museum of Art now shelters more than 20,000 works of art in its permanent collections and hosts 10–12 temporary exhibitions annually. While the museum is free and open to the public, membership grants subscriptions to the biannual report Bulletin and the newsletters Artscene magazine and Calendar newsletter, which keep readers abreast of forthcoming exhibitions, new acquisitions, educational programs, and ongoing controversy over the latest Crayola color. In addition to attending summer curatorial courses, members can nestle into reserved seating for Chazen Museum of Art’s weekly chamber-music concert series, Sunday Afternoon Live. After spending $20 gift-shop coupons, customers can continue amassing merchandise, catalogs, and posters at The Museum Shop, with 15% discounts on all purchases and occasional sales and specials.
