Additional Information


On Saturday, September 10, join the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s annual Party on the Porch. You'll explore the galleries, get creative with art-making activities, celebrate the closing weekend of Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass: American Artists and the Magic of Murano, and end the night with a free outdoor concert featuring country artist Brent Cobb.

Throughout the evening create a Venice-themed cityscape that will evolve and change all night; make your own colorful, mixed media mosaic inspired by works in the special exhibition Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass; create your own glowing, wearable artwork; bring to life a work of art at hands-on sensory stations; and participate in talks and tours throughout the galleries.
