Like a mirror, art reflects the beauty of the world around us, reveals who we truly are, and can contain a lot of naked people. Step into a funhouse of art-mirrors with today's Groupon for membership to the Reynolda House Museum of American Art, located in Winston-Salem's Reynolda Historic District adjacent to the Wake Forest University campus. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get a one-year individual membership (a $50 value).
- For $37, you get a one-year dual membership (a $75 value).
Surrounded by the carefully clipped hedges of a formal garden, Reynolda House Museum of American Art lets visitors contemplate canvases in the stately surroundings of a turn-of-the-century tobacco baron's mansion. Armed with personalized membership cards, members gain free admission to the museum’s permanent collection, which includes works by Mary Cassatt and Georgia O'Keeffe. Gorge hungry eyes on the soulful iron-horse portraits of railroad photographer O. Winston Link, on display until June 19, or pick up pointers from the Modern Masters from the Smithsonian American Art Museum (October 7–December 31). Reynolda House will be the two nomadic exhibitions’ sole stop in North Carolina this year before wandering off in search of new adventure.
Members also garner invites to exhibition-opening parties and other members-only events and can save 10% on purchases of silk ties, handmade jewelry, and discarded post-Impressionist ears at the museum store.
The dual membership is intended for two adults; children 18 and under and students with a valid ID are admitted for free.
