I’ve often had out-of-town visitors to the Think Finance HQ tell me that I should work for the Fort Worth chamber of commerce. After I detail all the reasons I love Fort Worth (the Cultural District, amazing zoo, TCU, Trinity Trails, the Stockyards, Sundance Square, Texas hospitality, etc. ) they are often ready to pack their bags and move to Cowtown. This weekend everyone can experience part of why I love Fort Worth so much with Day in the District. This Saturday (Sept. 25, 2010) eight of Fort Worth’s top cultural attractions are offering free admission to exhibits or performances. This includes:
- Amon Carter Museum of American Art —
- Ansel Adams: Eloquent Light
- Fort Worth Botanic Garden — Public Art Tour
- Fort Worth Community Arts Center — “Preservation is the Art of the City” & Distinguished Texas Artist Martin Delabano in “An Artful Life”
- Fort Worth Museum of Science and History (a Cooper family favorite) — Interactive science and history exhibits, including the Fort Worth Children’s Museum and Cattle Raisers Museum.
- Kimbell Art Museum — Fiery Pool: The Maya and the Mythic Sea
- Log Cabin Village — Harvest Homecoming (noon-4 pm)
- Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (another Cooper family favorite) — Vernon Fisher: K-Mart Conceptualism
- National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame — Discover the world of the cowgirl through memorabilia, interactive exhibits and multimedia presentations
Fort Worth is a great place to raise a family (especially for a cyclist like myself). Right now, I can’t think of any place we would rather be.
