Salvador Dali finally answered the age-old question when he melted an expensive clock trying to imitate his own art. Let art flatter you with imitation with today's deal: for $25, you and your family get a one-year membership (a $50 value) to the Chazen Museum of Art, located on University Avenue. This Groupon is only available to new members.
In addition to free regular admission to the Chazen Museum of Art (which is available to all humans), members receive exclusive invitations to opening receptions, reserved seating at Sunday Afternoon Live chamber music concerts, and the password to an underground pedway that leads to a European artists' commune known as the 'earlobe'. Benefits also include a 15% discount on all Museum Shop purchases and access to special members-only sales and jackets. A subscription to the Chazen's semiannual newsletter, Artscene, and printed announcements of new exhibitions keep museum members conversant in the latest art news. Skeptics can take a virtual tour of the museum's cavernous galleries and ornate crannies while looking ahead to forthcoming 86,000-square-foot expansion building opening in October of 2011. The new building will make room for galleries dedicated to African, Asian, Midwest regional, modern, and contemporary art along with extra display space for the museum's extensive permanent collection, while an intriguing list of recent exhibitions promises that frequent visits all year long will be well worth the elephant-drawn cab fare.
