A caption beneath a recently discovered cave-wall etching reads, "Ceci n'est pas une parasaurolophus," giving curious insight into the primitive beginnings of modern art. Experience the evolution of expression with today's deal: for $45, first-time members get one dual or one family one-year membership to the Institute of Contemporary Art, a $95 value. You have until June 30 to redeem your Groupon for membership cards; from which point you'll receive a year of free admission, membership perks, and an eviction notice for the Montell Jordan Super Fan ID currently residing in your wallet's coveted clear display slot.

The dual membership gives two art enthusiasts, one power couple, or a yoke of well-trained oxen in trench coats an annual membership. It includes two personalized membership cards, enabling either half of your preferred duo to visit the museum with or without the other. This way, when one person wants to spend the day basting hungry eyes in artistic eye gravy and the other would rather stay home deciphering conspiracies hard-coded into the newspaper, both parties can happily pursue their interests. The family membership comes with unlimited free admission for two adults and any children under 18. Members are also invited to the annual ICA family event and receive discounts and advance notice on ICA family programs. Benefits also include a 10% discount to the Water Café and the ICA Store. Use a family membership to inspire a budding artist already well versed in mashed-potato sculpting and drywall canvases to explore other mediums.

Photography, painting, sculpture, and installations are some of the many outlets for expression featured inside the progressive halls and walls at the ICA. With an ongoing permanent collection alongside constantly changing exhibitions, the ICA is always evolving and never gets old. The relatively new architectural wonder on the waterfront also plays host to performing arts, film and video events, informative lectures and talks, and family programs throughout the year. Some events are free; others require a small fee, which is discounted for members.

Reviews

Lonely Planet TV has featured the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Fodor's and Frommer's both recommend the museum as well:

  • Even if you think contemporary art isn't for you, the ICA is a blast. The city's first new art museum in nearly a century is a work of art in its own right. – Frommer's

Citysearchers give the ICA a solid 3.5 stars, while Yelpers rate it four. Two Parents Connect reviewers award it five, and nine TripAdvisors give the museum 3.5 owl eyes:

  • I went over Thanksgiving weekend and saw the exhibits which i [sic] thought were of high quality and well displayed. The building itself is fantastic. – medusagirl, TripAdvisor
  • The experimental/improvisational dance performances I've attended have been awe-inspiring. The lectures are really interesting and the performance/lecture space is quite intimate even when full. ICA consistently attracts extremely talented and interesting artists - and not only to their floor exhibition spaces. – adrienne50, Citysearch
