Amon Carter Museum
The only daughter of longtime Fort Worth publisher and promoter Amon G. Carter and creator of a museum of American art dedicated in his name has died at age 89.
On the morning of Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy realized that their Fort Worth hotel suite featured an extraordinary array of artwork — from a painting by Vincent van Gogh to a bronze by Pablo Picasso.
Did you know that Fort Worth is considered the “museum capital of the Southwest?” You don’t have to drive all over town or even do much research to figure out how it earned this title.
The feeling of photo paper. The distinct odor of processing chemicals. These memories are still being used in the art of photography.
Imagine walking the halls of your favorite art museum with an artist at your side, explaining what they were thinking at the time they created a specific piece of art. You can hear the artist telling you what he was experiencing as each brushstroke came into contact with the canvas.
