We’re friends of the Norton Simon Museum. For less than $50 a year, we can walk in any day to look at a single painting or check their latest exhibit. It’s like we own the place and are kind enough to let everyone else come too.
Vermeer’s Woman with a Lute is on loan from the Met. It’s not the best Vermeer, but since we’re members, we could wander in, look at it, talk about it a bit, and leave. For free.
