Dedicated to preserving, presenting, and interpreting fine art from across the globe, the Saint Louis Art Museum displays a vast array of pieces in its collection, with particular emphasis on Oceanic art, twentieth-century German art, and ancient Chinese bronzes. Membership bequeaths SLAM-lovers a bevy of benefits, such as free admission into the museum’s featured and rotating exhibits, including the current Fiery Pool, which boasts more than 90 ancient Mayan artifacts, and the upcoming displays of Monet's Water Lilies in October.
Feel particularly pampered with invitations to members-only events, such as Member Mornings on select Wednesdays and Saturdays, where members are invited into the museum prior to public opening for a themed docent tour. Snag unique gifts and décor with a 10% discount at the Museum Shop, or fuel bellies famished from eye-ingesting too much canvas with a 10% discount at the cafe. In addition, membership includes a subscription to the museum magazine, as well as discounted art classes and workshops for adults and children.
Groupon customers can also add themselves at no charge to the circle of Young Friends members, a diverse group of patrons who engage in fundraisers at the museum, participate in exhibition previews and tours, and receive special invitations to exclusive events, including cocktail parties and visits to local artists' studios.
