Party on the Porch

Join us for a night of American art, local food, hometown music, and the best view of Fort Worth—all at the Amon Carter!

This FREE event marks the completion of the museum’s renovation project. Listen to three fantastic local bands, Quaker City Night Hawks, The Unlikely Candidates and Ginny Mac, and eat at a variety of food trucks, including Bellatrino, Central Market, Gypsy Scoops, JBirds Chicken, Steel City Pops, and Taco Heads. The Photo Bus, a vintage photo booth in an original 1979 Volkswagen bus, is coming to the Amon Carter as well, and drinks will be available for purchase from Bar Louie, who will have a full satellite bar on site. Special lighting effects throughout the evening will highlight the portico.

Members receive access to a VIP tent located on the north side of the museum’s campus.

The extended gallery hours for Party on the Porch (until 9 p.m.) allow you to visit your favorite Amon Carter artworks and go on a social media scavenger hunt. Docents will be on hand offering tours of the permanent collection and exhibitions.

Follow our social media accounts for updates as the event gets closer! #ACMparty

This set of exhibitions will mark the first time such a large show has been staged in Taos, the result of an unprecedented and successful collaboration among arts organizations around town. Join Amon Carter curatorial staff for this visual feast and a rare opportunity inside the homes of art collectors. Collectors will reveal anecdotes about the ongoing search for works of art and the secrets of how their collections and aesthetics have evolved. This trip is for Circle members only.
