The Kimbell Art Museum is dedicated to the education, increased enjoyment, and cultural enrichment of the public through the display and interpretation of works of art. Our knowledge and understanding of the heritage of civilization is largely dependent upon the continued survival of the kinds of art objects contained in this museum. It follows that the paramount duty of the Kimbell Art Museum is to display and interpret to present generations and preserve for future generations, the highest aspirations of past generations as represented in the works of art entrusted to its care.


MONDAY–FRIDAY, JULY 17–21 or JULY 24–28, 1–4 p.m . Look, listen, move, create, collaborate! The Kimbell is calling all art and music lovers (ages 6–12) for a fun-filled week exploring how artists of all kinds inspire each another. Each afternoon, campers will learn how great European masters like Picasso, Matisse, Klee, and Kandinsky found inspiration in other art forms like music, dance, and poetry. Guest performers and daily studio-art projects in different media will inspire connections with early twentieth-century art movements and individual creativity. Offered in conjunction with the special exhibition "A Modern Vision: European Masterworks from the Phillips Collection." The materials fee is $225 ($180 for Kimbell members). A light snack will be provided. Members’ registration week is March 20–24; general registration opens March 27. To register, please select your preferred week and call 817-332-8451, ext. 351. Teen Artist Workshop MONDAY–FRIDAY, JUNE 12–16, 1–4 p.m. New York/Dallas-based artist Michelle Mackey will lead this five-day studio-art immersion program.

A light, midafternoon snack will be provided. The materials fee for the camp is $200 ($160 for members). Space is limited; to register, call 817-332-8451, ext. 351.
