Art is in the eye of the beholder, whereas swollen retinas are in the eye of the bee holder. Get soul-stung by provocative and powerful art with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-year dual/family membership to the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) (a $60 value).

The dual/family membership is valid for two adults and extends certain benefits to any children under 18. Members can enjoy free admission to all exhibition openings and MMoCA Nights, a 10% discount at the rooftop restaurant Fresco and all Food Fight restaurants, 10% off purchases in the museum shop, and plenty of other benefits. Current exhibits include Clayton Brothers: Inside Out, a collection of 26 wildly eclectic paintings and three mixed-media installations reflecting the brothers' cultural influences of surfing, punk rock, folk art, cartoons, weeks of rejecting pants, and street art. The permanent collection showcases approximately 5,000 pieces comprising all types of media, including sculpture, photography, paintings, and eucalyptus-induced hallucinations.

Located less than two blocks from the capitol on State Street, the MMoCA facility is a statest-of-the-artest building that opened in 2006. To mesh with the contemporary artifacts it houses, the building is a 51,500 sq. ft. paradigm of modern architecture with crisp white lines and iconic glass features. Unlike your personal Mercury spacecraft, this membership is tax deductible.

Reviews

The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art has a perfect five-star average from seven Yelpers and more than 1,000 Facebook fans:

  • We love to visit the various "moma's" throughout the country and Madison's never disappoints. I love that they have well known artists, the ones that you would expect and the lesser known artists. – Maureen O., Yelp
  • Having MMOCA in the heart of the college town adds to Madison's depth. – Lauren K., Yelp

Madison Museum of Contemporary Art

A 7,100-square-foot sculpture garden is only the tip of the iceberg at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. In fact, the garden is also the tip of the museum—it’s on the facility’s roof. Designed by Cesar Pelli, the sprawling building encompasses an eclectic array of modern works, including a 5,000-item permanent collection that incorporates pieces ranging from Frida Kahlo’s works to John Coplans’ black-and-white self portrait, which shows only his feet.

A rotating lineup of temporary exhibits complements the permanent core, and a regular event schedule features films, talks, and performance by masters of their craft. Visitors can browse art books and craft jewelry in the museum store, where all purchases support artists and designers.
