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.

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.
