Thanks to the creative programming of the Kimbell Art Museum, there are many ways to experience Monet: The Late Years. In addition to visiting the Kimbell Art Museum to view the exhibit, several Fort Worth businesses are helping to promote the show through unique flower bouquets, cocktails and other hand-crafted items. 

Monet Coffee Sleeves, Custom Lily Vases & More

Here’s an idea: make a day out of experiencing Monet outside the Kimbell. You can start by snagging coffee with Monet-themed sleeves from Avoca Coffee, Sons of Liberty Coffee, Buon Giorno, BREWED, Dwell and several other coffee spots.  


Near Southside-based Kendall Clay Davis has handmade several Monet-inspired vases that come with custom flower arrangements from Amelia Merie (@studiotersilla).


Grace has a special “Water Lily” cocktail. I haven’t had the pleasure of sipping this mixed drink, but Grace’s photo shows a martini glass with a wafer-thin slice of lime (sitting in for a lily) and specs of gold floating atop a silvery pour of spirits. Melt Ice Creams added 'Les Fraises' to their seasonal menu, a strawberry buttermilk ice cream that looks like heaven. 


Monet Stickers and Murals

West Magnolia Ave is hosting a Monet sticker (1455 W. Magnolia Ave) and several murals. All you tacophiles out there will be glad to hear that Fort Worth’s Salsa Limon and Taco Heads have nearby murals or stickers.


The Foundry District is home to one sticker near The Lathery (200 Carroll St.) While shopping or dining at The Shops at Clearfork, you can check out multiple stickers and a mural flower wall designed by Dr. Delphinium across from Rise. This is one of three in the DFW area. Snap a picture on Magnolia Ave. across from Melt Ice Creams or while shopping at NorthPark Mall (between Nordstrom and Dillard's).

If you are working your way through Visit Fort Worth’s Ale Trail, this would be a good time to check of Rahr & Sons Brewing Company while checking out its Monet sticker.
