Today only, head to Groupon to score deeply discounted admission to the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas! Choose from Three Options:

  • $12 for general admission for two ($24 value)
  • $22 for general admission for four ($48 value)
  • $32 for general admission for six ($72 value)

General admission grants visitors access to the museum’s assorted galleries and exhibits. The museum is closed on Mondays.

Though each work at the Museum of Biblical Art explores themes or depicts scenes from the Bible, the museum’s mission is to provide invaluable insight into centuries’ worth of art history as guests of all backgrounds and denominations learn about art’s portrayal of Western culture. More than 11 galleries and permanent exhibits, including Mysteries, Signs and Wonders: The Art of Barbara Hines, fill the museum’s 30,000 square feet of space, beckoning visitors to interpret installations ranging from paintings and sculptures to rare books and lithograph, with notable artists including Andy Warhol, Marc Chagall, Michelangelo, and John Singer Sargent. In addition to The National Center for Jewish Art, an on-site conservation lab, pilgrimage attractions, and watercolors of archaeological holy sites, the MBA also festoons its walls with works by African-American and Hispanic artists that analyze the same biblical themes, albeit from a different cultural perspective.

Head over to Groupon to get discounted tickets to Killer Queen: The UK’s Premier Queen Tribute on Friday, June 28, at 8 p.m. at the Bomb Factory in Dallas!

Killer Queen

  • Their story: Killer Queen formed in 1993, and their first public shows were at London University—just like the actual Queen 21 years prior. Back then, the band was billed as Closet Queen, but they officially became Killer in 1995.
  • Their success: Two years into their existence, Killer Queen secured residency in London’s Strand Theatre and attracted nationwide BBC coverage. Today, they continue to tour all over the world.
  • What to expect: A dazzling recreation of a Queen concert driven by lead man Patrick Myers, whose ability to replicate Freddy Mercury’s showmanship and vocals is downright mesmerizing.

Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm is hosting Make Music Allen on June 21st in honor of International Make Music Day! This live, free musical celebration will feature music making at various locations throughout Watters Creek. Make Music Day highlights the North Texas music community; from Rock & Roll to Bach and from aspiring musicians to seasoned professionals. With more than 27 performances planned, Make Music Allen is a free event and all ages are welcome.

Mass Appeal, part of Make Music Day, brings together thousands of musicians across the country – of all levels and ages – to make music in single-instrument groups large and small. Mass Appeal gatherings are a unique opportunity for players to meet up with others and jam. A free beginner lesson will take place prior to each Mass Appeal event and is open to anyone who would like to attend.

Bucket Drumming – Under the trees on The Green
Mini lesson/Mass Appeal: 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm
The Vic Firth Company is supporting our bucket drumming event. The first 25 participants – kids and adults, professionals and amateurs, will be handed a pair of Vic Firth sticks and invited to make music together. The goal is to spread the message that to make music, all you need is a beat in your heart… and a pair of sticks. Website: vicfirth.com

A Guitar Jam will take place at the same location under the trees on the Green from 4:30 pm – 6 pm

Harmonica Lesson with Jim Longley from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm by the Fireplace
Harmonica Mass Appeal by the Fireplace from 5:30 pm – 6:00 pm. Harmonicas provided.

Make Music Day is not a typical music festival. It is open to anyone who wants to participate. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — are invited to sign up through the Watters Creek office to share their music with the public. It is a free celebration of music around the world, which was launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique. Today, it is held on the same day [June 21] in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.
