A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words – What Will You Discover at This Exhibition of 15?
Step back in time and witness the evolution of the Fort Worth area when you catch the latest exhibition at Amon Carter Museum of American Art. "With the Help of Friends" celebrates 15 dynamic photographs ranging from the 1930s to the present day that were selected and purchased over the recent years by the Amon Carter with the assistance of its photography collection supporters. See these works and those contained elsewhere in the museum when you pay the Amon Carter a visit on Saturday, March 16th.
Whether it’s the youthful theatrics of Joaquin Trujillo’s Jacky or the raw industrial motion of Margaret Bourke-White’s Four Thousand Fahrenheit, Otis Steel Company, these photographs tell vivid stories about life and how we think about our world. At the same time, the exhibition proclaims the vibrancy of the museum’s ongoing relationship with its members, and the key help that members provide in keeping the collection one of the world’s leading repositories of photography.
The Amon Carter Museum of American Art was established through the generosity of Amon G. Carter Sr. (1879–1955) to house his collection of paintings and sculpture by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell; to collect, preserve, and exhibit the finest examples of American art; and to serve an educational role through exhibitions, publications, and programs devoted to the study of American art. Now in its sixth decade of operation, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art offers a diverse array of exhibitions, publications, and programs that connect visitors to masterworks of American art.
Take a closer look at local history when you attend the exhibition “With the Help of Friends.” Admission is free, and all ages are welcome to attend. For more information about this exhibition and others, visit www.cartermuseum.org.
