The aim of the Slow Art movement is to break with the often frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Slow Art at the Modern invests in this pause with a 30-minute spotlight tour focusing on one work of art. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern begins at 5:30 pm.

Third Fridays, 5:30 pm

QCinema Double Take
Jul 16, 2015

Raid of the Rainbow Lounge premiered in Fort Worth to a 2012 sold out audience, rave reviews and a media frenzy. The film was the lead story on every news broadcast (ABC, CBS, NBC, CW, FOX) in the DFW metroplex during the week leading up to the premier. The momentum has continued  with film screenings across the globe. ROTRL recounts the widely publicized and controversial 2009 police raid of a Fort Worth gay bar that resulted in multiple arrests and serious injuries. The raid occurred on the 40th anniversary of the raid of the Stonewall Inn. The parallels were haunting.
