The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

The Modern uses that unique presentation and interpretation to promote understanding as well as interest in its art collections, and gives every visitor the ability to go through a variety of lectures, workshops, and guided tours. The Modern's collection is consisted of nearly 3000 original paintings, photographs, sculptures of all shapes and sizes, and videos as well. As mentioned above, most of the works are dated between the end of the Second World War and the present, which makes the Modern a truly unique place to visit. It represents all major movements across the planet, including:

British, French, German, and American Pop;


New Image Painting;


One of the key features of the Modern is that it's accredited by the AAM (the American Alliance of Museums), which gives it the highest possible recognition one museum can achieve in America.

The Modern's structure exemplifies the work of Tadao Ando, a Japanese architect. The use of simple geometry, and the bare minimum of material selections makes the Modern reflect perfectly in the pond that surrounds it. It's enclosed by some beautiful trees and nearby hills, giving it an intimidating presence of modern work of art.
