If you want to see everything our city has to offer culturally, there isn’t a better value than Day in the District. For one day, Fort Worth’s most venerable historical, artistic, and scientific institutions open their doors and let the general public in for no charge, while performing arts organizations show you what they do.
The main draw looks to be the Modern’s spectacular Urban Theater exhibit that opened just last week, but there’s plenty more to take in. The Kimbell offers up the glories of its permanent collection, now partially housed in the Piano Pavilion, which also hosts a concert later this evening (see: Saturday blurb). The Amon Carter does likewise with its permanent collection, while the Fort Worth Community Arts Center shows off works by Elizabeth and Richard Ash and its annual Preservation Is the Art of the City exhibit.
Fort Worth Classic Guitar Society will make stops at both the Kimbell and the Carter, while you’ll also hear music by DVA Productions, Texas Boys Choir, Mondo Drummers, and the Baroque music ensemble Texas Camerata, among others. And Kids Who Care and Casa Kids will showcase work by the best children’s theater groups in the city. With free parking and a shuttle serving the area, there should be no problem taking it all in.
