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

“This is a sublime, comic journey, and a superb Lily has seldom been better.” Brandon Judell, Huffington Post. Self-described misanthrope Elle Reid (Lily Tomlin) has her protective bubble burst when her 18-year-old granddaughter, Sage, shows up needing help. The two of them go on a day-long journey that causes Elle to come to terms with her past and Sage to confront her future.

Our city is rife with musical talent, with a rich history of encouraging young artists. No organization understands that better than the Cliburn, and it is fitting that we launch this year’s Modern series, which celebrates living American composers, with works that were written here in our hometown. Two brilliant composers, who have each chosen to make Fort Worth their home as associate professors at TCU, will showcase their music.

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic, an overview highlighting the range of the artist's prolific 14-year career and comprising approximately 60 works. The exhibition begins with early examples of paintings inspired by Wiley’s observations of street life in Harlem; these images of African-American men mark the onset of his focused exploration of the male figure.
