Food trucks, live music and a photo booth will be at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art on Sept. 26 for “Party on the Porch,” a free event celebrating the museum’s renovation.

The event takes place from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., with the museum remaining open until 9 p.m.

Local bands Quaker City Night Hawks, The Unlikely Candidates and Ginny Mac will be performing. A variety of food trucks including Central Market, Steel City Pops and pizzeria BellaTrino will also be onsite. Bar Louie will be selling drinks at a satellite bar.

The event will also have The Photo Bus, a 1966 Volkswagen bus with a photo booth inside.

Construction on the museum’s façade began in February. The renovated entrance features glass panels that control the amount of light entering the building, which aids in the preservation of the art.

Public information coordinator Jessica Poole said there is no particular date for when construction will be completed, but the renovation should be finished in time for the party.

More information can be found on the museum’s website.
