60 Years Young

Our morning commute takes us past the Amon Carter Museum of American Art on a daily basis. Some days, we walk our dogs up the plaza stairs to take in the view as dawn breaks. The rising sun hits the building just right, bouncing off the angular walls and changing the color of the glass panels in front. It’s peaceful, and the view of the Cultural District makes us happy we live in the neighborhood. The Carter is celebrating its 60th birthday this year — the big party is scheduled for Sept. 25 — with lots of virtual events and a full schedule of exhibits leading up to the big bash. Save the date for April’s show looking at the Carter’s collection of works on paper, along with the “Photography Is Art” exhibition that same month. A comprehensive Scott and Stuart Gentling retrospective, the first ever for the late Fort Worth artist-brothers, opens in September. Until then, we’ll visit our favorite works in the galleries and wander the grounds as we await another glorious sunrise. Check out the schedule at cartermuseum.org.
