An Arbor for Art
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (or the Modern, as it's commonly called) is a 153,000 square-foot building comprised of five segments of steel and glass, which provide what Japanese architect Tadao Ando called an "arbor for art"—and which seem to float on the surface of a long, pristine reflecting pool. Inside are over 2,600 works of post-World War II art, including pieces by Picasso, Anselm Kiefer, Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, Andres Serrano, Richard Serra, Cindy Sherman, and many more. The museum has pieces that represent every major art movement from 1945 to today from Abstract Expressionism and British, German, French, and American Pop Art to Minimalism, Color Field Painting, Conceptualism, and Neo-Expressionism. German art of the 1970s and 80s is a particular area of strength in the collection.
