Interesting Events

The Museum that seems to be on the water…

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

To visit the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth means to make a fascinating journey that will stick in one’s memory as “Event and Impression”. Just on the way to it there is a mysterious carrot-color structure – a steel double-purpose sculpture that is 233,680 kg in weight and 22.3 meters in height! It was designed by Richard Serra. Besides, the “Vortex” monument has the best advantage of being used as an acoustic bell, inside of which an incredible effect gives rise. Every one inside this space grooves to hit it up: slaps hands, tromps feet, whistles, sings or roars with laughter - and at once in reply - a polyphonic echo feeds back, responding to even a gentle rustle…

The museum represents five well-proportioned pavilions with a flat roof and transparent glass walls: that gives a pure illusory perception that they seem to be sailing in the lake….A remarkable Japanese architect Tadao Ando has created a sensation of 4D- space by using the effect of lights. Dispersed and deflected natural light maintained by a complex system of continuous linear skylights and top windows is a dominance of internal space and magnificent source of illumination. Through metal-rimmed transparent glass walls one can see sculptures in the garden and water ripples smoothly enveloping the buildings. During nights these walls blink like big lanterns being reflected on the water surface. It is worthy of note that the light in this museum in a certain manner forms a peculiar emotional impact upon perception of art-objects.

A permanent collection amounts to over 2,500,000 items of fine arts, decorative, applied arts and digital graphics made by outstanding American and European painters. Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Francis Bacon, Tony Cragg, Mark Rothko, Josef Albers, Anselm Kiefer, Cindy Sherman and Andy Warhol are among them. The Modern Art Museum exposition includes a full-value collection of abstract expressionism – one of core trends in American arts in 1950’s.

Interestingly, the US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle decorated their apartments in the White House with masterpieces of contemporary painters, including famous abstractionists. Their choice was made in favor of pictures painted by Susan Rothenberg, one of the most recognized painters in the USA for the last 30 years…

This museum is involved in research and educational work that deserves a special attention: surveys, publications, lectures, excursions, master-classes, instructional programs, events of different caliber. Surely, something ingenious on the arts subject might be found in the museum shop, if you drop in. A pretty nice coffee bar, I should say. Museum is very much alive and anyone is looking forward to come back here.
