The Modern Contemporaries
Our “Under-Forty” Friends!

Who we are.
Members of the Modern Contemporaries are a dynamic group of Modern Art Museum supporters in their twenties and thirties—young professionals, graduate students, artists, art lovers, Fort Worth natives, new residents, and everyone in between.

What we do.
