Framing Desire Exhibit

Just saw the Framing Desire exhibit. Wonderful exhibit of mostly photographs. Each photo just draws you into the scenes captured by the artist. See it now through August 23.

We went on a Sunday (the museum is free on Sundays in 2015) and enjoyed the variety of works throughout the museum. I do think that they could benefit from more outdoor works.

This museum is terrific. The building itself with its reflecting pool and restaurant are worth the trip. But guess what: The interior walls are full of world class works of modern art; both a permanent and traveling exhibitions ( and there is always a traveling exhibit) will blow your mind). And be sure to find the giant metal sculpture in... More

Quite an interesting selection of paintings, sculptures, and installations. Loved that it was free on Sunday.

I enjoyed visiting the Modern art museum and try to do so any time that I visit the Kimbell across the street. The contrast between the two museums gives you a better appreciation of each. Also, Students get a discount!

There is a huge painting in the downstairs area with a large dried sunflower hung upside down right in the middle of the painting - and all around it muted colors in grays and black, all about WW2 - gave me the chills - but I could not leave it -- absolutely amazing. Then on to the great little cafe... More

Maybe I just don't get modern abstract art and installations, but the works exhibited here, and there isn't that much to see, is underwhelming. Technically subpar photography that also doesn't evoke any emotions, abstract paintings that are little more than horizontal and vertical lines. Expected more. Exterior of the building is very nice though with a reflecting pond.

I know what you're thinking...or many of you are thinking..."I don't 'get' modern art". Well, maybe you don't, but this is THE best collection of what I think of as accessible modern art. There is truly something for everyone. Will some of the pieces leave you scratching your head? Yes. Will some pieces possibly offend you? Well, I'm good with... More

This is a great museum to visit for a nice exhibit before catching up with the Ft. Worth night life. They have some really nice art work that is worth seeing that you won't find any where else and get some great exhibits in.

Free admission on Sundays, at least for this month...we stopped in for a brisk self-tour through the MAMFW...lots of interesting pieces, and far-ranging subject matter...worth the visit!
