Another "Free in Fort Worth" event in the City of Cowboys and Culture!
Gene and Jerry Jones, owners of the Dallas Cowboys, are in conversation with the Modern's chief curator, Michael Auping. When conceiving the new Cowboys Stadium, the Jones family sought to create more than a football stadium. The idea was to build a twenty-first-century coliseum that would engage not only sports, but architecture, design, technology, and art. One of the most exciting aspects of the building is its inclusion of a world-class collection of contemporary art, many of the works created specifically for the new building. For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Stadium Art, Auping, who was part of the advisory committee for the project, talks with the Joneses about their vision and how it came to fruition.
These lectures are held in the Modern's auditorium and begin at 7 pm. The Tuesday Evenings series brings artists, scholars, and critics to discuss their work each week during the spring and fall. The fall series ends November 9. Admission is free and open to the public. Free admission tickets can be picked up at the Modern's admission desk beginning at 5 pm on the day of the lecture. Seating begins at 6:30 pm and is limited to the first 250 ticketholders. A live broadcast of the lecture will be shown in Café Modern for any additional guests. The Museum galleries and Café Modern will remain open until 7 pm on Tuesdays during the series, (regular gallery admission charge applies).
