MISSION

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is dedicated to collecting, presenting, and interpreting international developments in post–World War II art in all media and creating a welcoming environment for its public appreciation. The Modern promotes understanding and interest in art and artists through curatorial research and publications, and a variety of educational programs, including lectures, guided tours, classes, and workshops.  The collection of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is comprised of nearly 3,000 objects, including paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, and prints. The majority of works in the collection are dated between 1945 and the present. All major, international movements are represented, including Abstract Expressionism; British, German, French, and American Pop; Color Field Painting; Minimalism; Conceptualism; Post-Minimalism; New Image Painting, and Neo-Expressionism. Pop and Minimalism are particularly strong, as is German art of the 1970s and 1980s

MORE ABOUT US

Our popular Art Camp at the Modern is back! Art camp is for ages 4 to 13 and Summer Art Study is for ages 14 to 17. The Modern's unique programs for young artists emphasize learning through direct observation of art and thoughtful activities inspired by the permanent collection and current exhibition. This introduces students to some of the complex and challenging concepts and practices behind modern and contemporary art. Distinguished area artists are invited to design and lead art activities based on the art in the galleries. Activities encompass everything from art making in the traditional sense to interdisciplinary exploration. Grouped by age and accompanied by their counselors, art campers spend time in the galleries and on the grounds exploring the art and architecture, followed by time in the Museum studio where they work with two artists each session. Instructors provide enriching opportunities to process, apply and respond to ideas formed in relation to the art on view. The last day of camp ends with a reception and display the campers' artwork to celebrate their creative accomplishments with families and friends. Campers make exciting discoveries concerning art, the world and themselves through Art Camp at the Modern. Online registration begins Friday, March 24, at www.themodern.org. For questions, please call 817.840.2121 or e-mail childrensprograms@themodern.org.
