Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, also known as “The Modern”, is one of the most renowned museums of modern and contemporary art in Texas.
The museum, the state’s oldest exclusively focused on fine arts, was founded in 1892. Over time, the museum has evolved into an institution dedicated to modern and contemporary art.
Since 2002 the Modern is housed in a famous building, designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, close to the Kimbell Art and the Amon Carter museums in Fort Worth, establishing with them an outstanding ensemble of art and architecture.
The museum “is dedicated to collecting, presenting, and interpreting international developments in post–World War II art in all media”. The Modern has a collection of over 3,000 works, displayed on rotation, including masterpieces by Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Georg Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer, Ron Mueck, Gerhard Richter, Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, and Richard Serra.
The Modern Art Museum also organizes temporary exhibitions, guided tours, performances, screenings, concerts, and special events.
The museum building, fully accessible to physically impaired people, includes a shop and a restaurant.
