Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

We stopped by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth to see "Glen Ligon AMERICA" mid-career retrospective.  This exhibition does not disappoint.  If you are easily offended by words just stay away.  My favorites were the door paintings from the 90's.  These were large mostly monochromic paintings with phrases such as "I remember the very day I became colored" and "I do not always feel colored" stenciled from top to bottom of the painting.  Photography is not allowed for special exhibitions, however please visit the Modern Art Museum's website for additional information.
