Still Shopping?


If you're looking for ways to support the arts in your community during the holidays, there are several ways you can show your love AND wrap up shopping for everyone on your list.

1. Give the gift of Membership. MCASD Membership makes a meaningful gift for all occasions. Treat the art lover in your life to 12 months of unlimited free admission, exclusive opening exhibition parties, TNT (Thursday Night Thing), art tours, lectures, and exclusive Member events. Members also receive discounts at the Museum Café and the X Store, as well as reciprocal membership throughout the country. Purchase any membership before December 31, and two free guest passes (a $20 value) will be included with the membership package. These make great stocking stuffers!

2. Shop at the X Store—in La Jolla or online. Did you know that shopping at the X Store provides more than unique, hip, and of-the-moment gifts for everyone on your list?

4. Give good taste! Treat someone to brunch or lunch at the Museum Cafe in La Jolla, now open 8 AM-3 PM seven days a week. Then enjoy a visit to the galleries to see Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface, an exhibition The New York Times calls “impeccable.” Tip: Show your same-day Museum Cafe receipt to receive $2 off admission.

5. Make a gift to the Museum Fund in someone’s honor, a wonderful way to recognize or memorialize a family member or friend. In addition to a letter acknowledging your contribution, we will inform the designated honoree that you've made a gift in his or her name (simply include this information in the order comments).
