For the sixth iteration of MODERN BILLINGS, Art Study students designed six billboards for Fort Worth, Texas. Led by former MODERN BILLINGS artist and TCU Assistant Professor of Photography Kalee Appleton, these high school students spent one week researching, sharing, and interpreting photographic works within the Modern’s permanent collection. Due to COVID-19, Art Study had to adapt its structure and shift to an online format. Making the most of these conditions, the students worked virtually in small groups to build an image archive to appropriate from to find interpretations of home.

Participating Art Study students include Alexandra Cooper, Olivia Cooper, Bailey Darby, Bethany Davis, Tiffany Kalema, Elliot Kinney, Kerby McCracken, Yesenia Raymond, Monica Rosario, and Madeline Smith.
