Can you believe it has been 40 years since the Kimbell Art Museum opened? Known as "America's best small museum," the Kimbell offers a world-class collection of art, with masterpieces from antiquity to the 20th century, including works by El Greco, Cezanne, Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisee. From Oct.  7-Dec. 3, you can see the amazing permanent collection during the Kimbell at 40:An Evolving Masterpiece. This exhibition celebrates the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Kimbell Art Museum in 1972. More than 220 masterpieces will be displayed throughout the Museums' galleries in the largest-ever permanent collection installation. 

Sunday, October 7th come out to the Kimbell for a fun-filled day of celebrating. The Fort Worth Opera Children's Opera Theatre will be performing The Bremen Town Musicians at 12:30 and 2:30pm. There will also be children's films presented by Lone Star Film Society at 1:30pm. If you can’t make one of the films or performances don’t worry there will still be plenty to keep you entertained all day. There will be ongoing art-making activities, family gallery tours and family self-guide brochures.
