First Friday at the Modern

  • August 5, 2016 5:00 PM

Featuring Taylor Craig Mills
Special Cocktail - Summer Sizzler

"Mills has an angelic ache in his voice, a gentle yet dramatic vibrato, and he slides easily into heartfelt falsettos. He sometimes sounds like a choirboy prodigy suffering an existential crisis (that’s a compliment), and his so-sincere-it-hurts approach to many of these tunes amps up the romantic and psychological intensity. " –– Jimmy Fowler, Fort Worth Weekly

The first Friday of each month, the Star-Telegram, the Modern, and Café Modern team up to bring you live music and cocktails in the museum's Grand Lobby from 5 to 8 pm. Bring your friends and enjoy diverse live performances, unique cocktail selections, and the opportunity to dine in Café Modern by night. A docent-led, 20-minute tour of the galleries is available at 6:30 pm (regular gallery admission applies). Gallery admission is free for Modern members and Star-Telegram Press Pass holders during First Fridays at the Modern.
