This Tuesday begins the Modern Lecture Series at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Tuesday, Sept. 12, through Tuesday, Nov. 14, will feature lectures and presentations by artists, architects, historians, and critics. The series is free and open to the public.
This weekend will feature artists Linda and Ed Blackburn in conversation with Mark Thistlethwaite, TCU’s Kay and Velma Kimbell Chair of Art History.
Linda and Ed Blackburn are local Fort Worth artists that some say have become important fixtures in the North Texas art community.
Thistlethwaite is considered a significant fixture in the community in his own right.
According to the website, all three have a long and enduring relationship with the Modern. Their lecture will map a timeline of their involvement with the museum, along with a discussion of their work and experiences in art.
“ ‘Ed, Linda, and Mark’s Adventures at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth’ promises to inform artists and art enthusiasts of all stripes about the adventures of three overlapping careers in art,” the website reads. “It is a bit of history as it relates to the Modern, the region, and the art world at large, as well as a tale of what it means to endure and succeed in a field in which the parameters are what you make them. Their stories will serve to entertain and instruct.”
Modern Lecture Series nights begin at 7 pm in the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth’s auditorium. Seating begins at 6:30 p.m. and is limited to 250 guests. Additionally, a live broadcast of the presentations will be shown in Café Modern for any additional guests.
Tickets will be available for $5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the day of the lecture online at www.themodern.org/programs/lectures.
Free admission tickets (limit two per person) are available at the Modern’s information desk beginning at 5 pm on the day of the lecture.
