Additional information

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is a leader in collecting, showing, and interpreting art from the 1940s to the present. Situated in the heart of the  Cultural District, the  creative  center of the  city, the  Modern has been housed since 2002 in an elegant concrete, glass, and steel  building  designed by the renowned  Japanese  architect  Tadao  Ando. In addition to 53,000 square feet of soaring, light-filled gallery space and landscaped grounds  with outdoor sculptures, the museum features a reflecting pond,  theater, education center, gift shop, and  café, creating a thriving  hub  for our  community  and beyond.

Founded in 1892, the Modern is the oldest museum in Texas;  however,  our mission has  changed  over the years. Today, we strive  to connect audiences  of all ages and backgrounds  with  the most compelling art and ideas of our time.  Showcasing the work of historically significant, mid-career, and emerging artists, the Modern is  known  for  its  evolving collection,  which is international in scope. The Museum’s  holdings include influential artists from Pablo Picasso, Philip Guston, Anselm Kiefer, Martin Puryear, and Agnes Martin to Mark Bradford, Teresita Fernández, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and Kehinde Wiley. We have a long history of close relationships with the living artists we show and collect,  many of whom  visit the museum  regularly  to give talks and lead workshops.

The  Modern is a center of lifelong learning and  exchange.  Our programs include tours, lectures by leading figures in the art world, youth and adult classes, art camps,  workshops, and  a range of  small-group  studio and gallery programs led by the Museum's educators, docents, and community artists. We also present critically acclaimed  first-run films and partner  with other local arts  organizations  to offer  music, dance, and theater.
