Art and Relationships

Topical Tour

There are all sorts of relationships – love, friendship, family, professional, and others. Relationships have influenced art, made art, and made art collections! The Amon Carter itself had its beginnings in a friendship, and came into bloom through a family relationship. Artists have collaborated, influenced each other, and married each other. This tour discusses how some of these relationships have influenced the museum’s permanent collection. No reservations are required.
