Fort Worth Museum Trip / Bernini Special Exhibition

I made a trip out to the Fort Worth museums last year with a friend. We were moved and transformed by a particular piece. As such, we want to go back to see whats new. In addition, I have a goal to see the special exhibit: Bernini: Sculpting in Clay!

https://www.kimbellart.org/exhibition/bernini-sculpting-clay

We will start at the Fort Worth Art Museum and then walk next door to the Kimbell. Admission is free at the FWAM (on first Sunday of the month) and $16 for KAM

As I like to grow and learn new things, I also like to share and learn from others. Hoping to get some of my friends in Fort Worth to partake in the event and discussion!

    Here is how I envision this:

    Meet at the Modern art museum shortly before 10AM. All those that attend can break up into groups of 5 or 6 to explore the museum. This will allow each group to easily discuss the art among themselves. This will allow everyone to get different perspectives of each piece. Feel free to leave a group and join a different one for more perspectives!

    The plan is to be at the museum at approximately 9:45. We can meet at the door and go in when it opens. I will leave for lunch around 12:30 and be at the Kimbell at about 1:30.

    We can meet in front of that door at that time and repeat the process.

    Thoughts?

      You may use TRE train from Victory station. If you get a regional day pass you can use bus transportation in forth worth that stops quite close to both museums.

      I don't think TRE service is available on Sunday
