The panel was moderated by Christina Rees, a Glasstire correspondent and director of Fort Worth Contemporary Arts.

The panel was held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, 2011 in the auditorium of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The night before, The Rachofsky House in Dallas hosted a private reception for panelists, patrons, artists and curators.

No disrespect, but … Regionalism (capital R) is an ongoing Art movement. Not a figment, nostalgic, quaint, or unambitious, certainly not dead. Just thought folk should know. It would have been interesting if the panel had included an actual Regionalist.
