MOD MUSEUM
Cowtown Goes Contemporary


Designed by world-renowned architect Tadao Ando, this museum is itself a work of art. It’s the new MODERN ART MUSEUM OF FORT WORTH, the second largest modern art museum in the country, after the MoMA in New York. The mammoth museum, with 53,000 square feet of exhibit space, embodies much of Ando’s signature style, including looming walls of smooth concrete and an immense cantilevered concrete roof. It’s surrounded by 11 lovingly landscaped spaces and a reflecting pond. (817) 738-9215, www.themodern.org
