Sundays with the Modern offers unique perspectives on special exhibitions, with artists, curators, art historians, and writers holding conversations in the galleries. This program is free and begins at 1 pm on the first Sunday of selected months. In conjunction with México Inside Out: Themes in Art Since 1990, these special gallery talks feature artists included in the exhibition.
A public tour focused specifically on current special exhibitions is available at 2 pm on the first Saturday of each month. This tour does not require prior arrangements and begins in the Museum lobby.
Docents are available to lead a public tour of the Modern’s building, designed by the renowned architect Tadao Ando, on the first Saturday of each month at 11 am. This tour does not require prior arrangements and is free with the price of admission.
A docent-led, twenty-minute tour of the galleries is available at 6:30 pm. Admission to the galleries is $10, $4 for students and seniors, free for Modern members. On First Friday, gallery admission is free for Star-Telegram Press Pass Holders.
Third Fridays, 5:30–6 pm
The idea of “slow art” has its origins in the “slow food” movement centered on the enjoyment and appreciation of food that began in Italy in the late 1980s. The aim of the slow art movement is to break from the frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern features a 30-minute tour beginning at 5:30 pm that focuses on one work of art.
