Fort Worth, considered to be one of the hubs of art and culture in Texas has risen to prominence as a go-to locale for museums, galleries, concert halls and theater venues. The prominent Cultural District more so than any other artistic draw in the area that gives the city its truly aesthetic vibe.
Art Museums in Fort Worth: From Americana to Post Modern
The Kimbell Art Museum is in the heart of the Cultural District. Residents who live in proximity to this popular venue can visit the museum’s permanent collection and their impressive yearly roster of traveling exhibitions which in the past has included the likes of Botticelli and the ever popular French Impressionists.
Journey a hundred feet across the street and you get to experience the comprehensive immersion into the world of art afforded by the Modern Art Museum. Established in 2002, the museum features an incredible 50,000 plus square feet of gallery space, with a permanent collection focusing on post WW II art, complete with a tranquil reflection pond.
