Unlike the decorated refrigerator door, art museums rarely compose magnetic poetry or remind anyone to pick up milk on the way home from work. Witness the well-curated beauty of nonperishable art with today’s Groupon to the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University in Durham. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get an individual membership (a $50 value).
  • For $30, you get a family membership (a $60 value).<p>

With an ambitious schedule of changing exhibitions that includes more than 13,000 works of art in its various permanent and visiting collections, the Nasher Museum of Art shares with the community an opportunity to appreciate the dynamics of art through experiential learning, interaction, and observation. A one-year single, or family membership marches art aficionados under a criss-crossed glass ceiling toward collections and exhibits such as The Deconstructive Impulse: Women Artists Reconfigure The Signs Of Power, 1973-1991. Visitors can also see Becoming: Photographs from the Wedge Collection, a panoply of photographs of roughly 100 pieces from more than 60 artists that explores identity through photography—all woven together into a provocative panorama of vivid, hard-to-smell sights.

All membership options include admission and swing open the doors to programs, performing-arts events, lectures, film series, and social gatherings. A 10% discount in the museum store and café is also included, so budding Pollocks can discover colors with What Colour is Your World? or grab edibles crafted from local ingredients. The one-year family membership allows free admission for two adults and children 18 and younger.

Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University

Designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University not only houses precious works of art that span centuries; it is a work of art itself. Composed of five separate, rectangular volumes, the Nasher Museum compartmentalizes its 65,000 square feet of space elegantly and efficiently. Two pavilions host rotating exhibits and another pavilion contains the permanent collection. In addition, an auditorium seats 173 people and features lectures and film screenings, whereas the final pavilion houses two classrooms, in addition to the museum's store and café, where members receive discounts.
