Have You Visited These Fort Worth Art Museums?

Art MuseumLiving in North Richland Hills, we are fortunate to be close to not one, but two, world-class cities. Though Dallas often gets the lion’s share of cultural attention, Fort Worth is home to a number of outstanding art museums. The Kimbell, Fort Worth Modern, and Amon Carter each house a distinct permanent collection, and they offer a number of rotating exhibits. Whether it is your first visit or your hundred and first, take advantage of these stunning cultural landmarks in the heart of Cowtown.  

The Kimbell Art Museum

The Kimbell offers a diverse collection of ancient and classical art from around the world, and admission to the permanent collection is free. Though the permanent collection only contains about 350 works, the museum is regarded for the outstanding quality of its holdings. You can view Pre-Columbian statuary, exquisite Asian pottery, and ancient African masks, as well as works by Bernini, Caravaggio, Monet, Picasso, and more. The next special exhibit goes on display March 1, when you can see paintings from the extensive collection of Texas philanthropists Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

The Fort Worth Modern houses a stunning collection of the finest post-WWII works. With over 2,600 works in the permanent collection, the museum constantly rotates what is on display. Artists include Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, George Segal, and more. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum hosts a number of temporary exhibits and events. January 30 and February 1, you can catch a screening of Two Days, One Night, the film that garnered Marion Cotilliard a 2015 Oscar Nomination for Best Actress. Admission to the Fort Worth Modern is $10. Admission is free on Sundays and half price on Wednesdays.

Amon Carter Museum of American Art

The Amon Carter focuses exclusively on treasures of our own country, including paintings, illustrated books, photography, and sculpture. The Museum is particularly known for its collection of paintings by Fredric Remington and Charles M. Russell, the two foremost painters of the American West. Now through August 2, you can also view the special collection Audubon’s Beasts. This exhibit features lesser known animal paintings by the world’s most highly regarded avian expert. Admission to the Amon Carter is free.
