David Bates Comprehensive Tour for Members 
Explore the work of David Bates at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Nasher Sculpture Center. Select Saturdays this spring, Modern members have the opportunity to join a special touring group to visit both museums' presentations of David Bates in a single day. Beginning at 10 am the Modern, participants will enjoy a one-hour docent-guided tour of David Bates, gaining understanding of Bates' painting process and enjoying an introduction to the artist's subjects. Participants will enjoy lunch at Cafe Modern, then take a chartered shuttle to the Nasher for an hour-long docent-led tour of Bates' sculpture and works on paper. This unique combination tour will illuminate connections among the artist's paintings, drawings, and sculptures and is an intimate look at Bates' working process.
