|Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980's (Corcoran Gallery of Art)|
If you are looking for the most fashionable, most fabulous events happening around town here in Washington, DC I highly recommend joining the 1869 Society at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. I became a member in 2012 and had a blast attending docent led tours of exhibits days before they opened to the public, pool parties at the Capitol Skyline Hotel complete with a performance by the legendary Howard University marching band and much more. Membership is only $125 for the year and includes free admission to the museum (a savings of $10 each time you visit), discounts at the Corcoran Shop (where you can purchase original works by Corcoran College of Art and Design students), and savings on brunch and cocktails at Todd Gray's Muse Cafe located in the museum lobby.
You will also receive guest passes, great for out of town visitors who want to check out the latest exhibits like Pump Me Up: DC Subculture of the 1980's or Shooting Stars: Publicity Stills from Early Hollywood and Portraits by Andy Warhol. Your 1869 Society Membership also gives you a reduced rate on continuing educations classes (like drawing, painting, metal working) at the accredited Corcoran College of Art and Design.
So what are you waiting for? Join today and I'll see you at the museum!
