Kimbell Art Museum
The Kimbell Art Museum, owned and operated by the Kimbell Art Foundation, opened in the celebrated Cultural District of Fort Worth, Texas, in 1972. Its collection consists of about 350 works that not only epitomize their eras and styles, but also touch individual highpoints of aesthetic beauty and historical importance. The Kimbell hosts major interpretative exhibitions and provides a full schedule of public programs for diverse audiences, including free lectures and films, a book discussion group, tours, studio-art workshops, and festivals.
The Museum’s building, designed by American architect Louis I. Kahn, is widely regarded as one of the outstanding architectural achievements of the modern era. A second building, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, is scheduled to open in 2013 and will provide space for special exhibitions, allowing the Kahn building to showcase the permanent collection.
