We are so glad that you are excited about 50 Fest...we are too! Please invite your friends and family to join in on the fun and help us celebrate the museum's 50th Anniversary!

Wow, sounds like a great evening!

Sounds great! And, any of y'all who've heard Del Castillo know you're in for a HUGE treat...anyone else, come and find out!

We'll bring the kids.

I am always in awe over the great art & museums that we have right here in Fort Worth.

The Amon Carter has been my favorite for the past 44 years (as long as I can remember)
We could use another great man like Amon Carter to take the reins of Fort Worth!

Congratulations on this milestone and I hope to see Stacy, Sara, Nancy and all of the wonderful staff that makes the Amon Carter Museum of American Art unquestionably one of THE BEST museums in the USA!

I'll be there for the celebration, to reflect on how the Carter has transformed me both personally and professionally over my lifespan and to catch a glimpse of my favorite painting (that according to the word on the street is back from LA)
