What You'll Get
Art enriches lives, unlike artifacts, which litter lives with wooden equines and marble busts of Pat Boone. Bury your busts in the backyard with today's deal: $34 for a Friend-level membership, which gets two cardholders a year of free admission, plus other benefits, at UCLA's Hammer Museum.
The Hammer Museum presents a broad range of exhibitions, a well-rounded permanent collection with a special focus on Southern California artists in the contemporary collection, and a full schedule of public programs. Selections from the Hammer Contemporary Collection include works by Mel Bochner, Mark Bradford, Llyn Foulkes, and Gillian Wearing, as well as video work by Paul Chan and a 20-part painting installation by Kara Walker. The permanent collection contains photography and abstract drawings from the likes of Agnes Martin and Ed Ruscha, as well as more historical works in the Grunwald Center, including more than 45,000 prints, drawings, photos, and artists' books dating back to the Renaissance, a period of intellectual inquiry and above-average paninis.
Friend-level membership includes two membership cards for consenting adults, free unlimited admission for two, priority admission for two to the Hammer public programs, four guest passes, a 10% discount to the museum store and the museum's café, invitations to exhibition opening parties and members-only breakfasts, the Hammer quarterly calendar, monthly emails featuring the latest news and events, reduced subscription rates for select art magazines, and reciprocal membership privileges at more than 25 university art museums and seven underwater cafes.
