Amon Carter Throws a Big Public Party on its New “Porch”


The Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth has been under renovation since February; it overhauled its facade for the sake of art conservation and accessibility (don’t worry; it didn’t compromise its distinctive Philip Johnson-ness). On September 26, probably just as the worst of DFW’s blazing heat gives way to something evoking a fall season, the museum will have a “Party on the Porch,” a free event from 5-10 p.m. with “live music, food trucks and art.”

Via the Amon Carter:

“Guests can listen to three fantastic local bands, Quaker City Night HawksThe Unlikely Candidates andGinny Mac, and eat at a variety of food trucks, including BellatrinoCentral MarketGypsy ScoopsSteel City Pops and Taco HeadsThe Photo Bus, a vintage photo booth in an original 1966 Volkswagen bus, is coming to the Amon Carter as well, and drinks will be available for purchase from Bar Louie, who will have a full satellite bar on site. Special lighting effects throughout the evening will highlight the portico.”

The museum will extend its exhibition hours to 9 p.m. that evening. There’s something called a “social media scavenger hunt.” There will be docent tours. It all sounds lovely. For more info, please go here.
