What You'll Get
Art museums offer a home for timeless masterpieces, a contemplative haunt for art enthusiasts, and a refuge of eternal quietness for van Gogh's ear. Cut off a piece of Georgia culture with today's Groupon for membership to The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, which must be activated within one month. Choose between the following options:
- For $17, you get a one-year individual membership (up to a $35 value).
- For $20, you get a one-year family membership (a $60 value).
The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia preserves the Peach State's vibrant creative culture in a showcase featuring more than 600 original works from more than 200 area artistes. As members, art appreciators gain a year of free admission to the museum's expansive permanent collection—an enriching array of paintings, sculptures, embarrassing yearbook pictures, photographs, and digital media dating back to the 1940s—as well as admission to all special exhibitions, which include Georgia-based projects as well as the masterpieces and avant-garde papier-mâché volcanoes culled from international artists. If time spent among the collection makes your inner salmon jump merrily upstream, be sure to capitalize on members-only museum events and take museum memorabilia home from its online store, which offers member discounts.

About The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia
Visiting The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia isn't just about seeing works that have already been deemed important. It's also about discovering what the future of art may look like. That's because the museum showcases the visual works of not only established artists, but also emerging talent throughout the state. By investing so heavily in Georgia's artistic community and making the museum's collections available to the general public, MOCA GA strives to preserve these artists' legacies for the viewing pleasure of present and future generations. The permanent collection currently features over 920 works by more than 250 different artists, including paintings, sculptures, photography, prints, and digital works from the mid 1940s to the present day.
MOCA GA's staff displays many of the pieces from the permanent collection alongside works by artists from around the world, demonstrating how Georgia's artistic community fits into a larger global context. The museum hosts rotating exhibitions throughout the year, and it encourages community engagement by regularly holding artist talks and other public programs.
