Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth - Cultural District: $30 for an Annual Membership for Two to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth ($65 Value)

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 an annual membership for two adults (a $65 value) to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, located in the Cultural District. Members receive, among other benefits, unlimited free admission for two adults (normally $10 each); priority and discounted enrollment in museum classes; and discounts at The Modern Shop, The Modern Online, and Café Modern, which was hailed as "one of America's best restaurants" by Gourmet magazine.

The Modern Art Museum's architecturally impressive, aqua-hovering, glass-walled building contains 53,000 square feet of gallery space and more than 2,600 works of contemporary art (approximately 500 works are viewable at a time) from around the world. The permanent collection boasts pieces by such heavy hitters as Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Pollock. Current exhibitions include K-Mart Conceptualism, a display by world-acclaimed artist and longtime Fort Worth resident Vernon Fischer. The exhibit, on display until January 2, 2011, juxtaposes language and images into visually literary and literally visual artsperiences (the Dallas Morning News calls the works "monumentally powerful").

A loaded docket of upcoming exhibitions keeps the galleries fresh, and film and music events tickle the brain, which sometimes causes sneezing. You'll learn the ins and outs of using your membership toward the Modern Art Museum's diverse offerings at a new-member-orientation session.

Reviews

The Dallas Morning News recently reviewed the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth's current Vernon Fisher exhibition. Frommer's rates the museum "exceptional." TripAdvisors give it an average of 4.5 owl eyes, and Yelpers give it an average of 4.5 stars:

  • The 37 works that fill the second-floor galleries at the Modern of Fort Worth are monumentally powerful. Even though some are more than 30 years old, the whole show seems fresh. – Gaile Robinson, Dallas Morning News, on the Vernon Fisher exhibit
  • It is my favorite new museum -- or work of architecture, period -- since Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Bilbao in Spain. – Frommer's
