A Conversation with Texas Women Sculptors

Conversation with artists and museum curator

Join Amon Carter curator Shirley Reece-Hughes as she speaks with five Texas-based woman artists about the ways that they have taken sculpture in new directions in the twenty-first century. Discover how the unique geography of Texas allowed them to find their expression and individualism and center their artistic visions.

This program will be followed by a brief meet and greet with the artists. The autographed book produced in conjunction with the exhibition will be for sale in the Museum Store.

This program is made possible by a gift from the late Anne Burnett Tandy.

Storytime: Big and Small

Stories and artmaking for families with children 8 and under

Storytime is upside down and inside out at the Amon Carter as we explore opposites this summer! This week, visitors will focus on all things big and small when they bring their family to hear stories, look at artworks, and create their own works of art! Snacks will be provided.

During each Storytime, adults can register their participating children to win that week’s featured books. A drawing will be held after each program; those chosen will be contacted via phone or email.

Storytime is held every Wednesday, June 6 through July 25 (except on July 4), from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

This program is best for families with children ages eight and under and their adult companions. If you work for a summer school or day care, we offer a customized experience for your students on a different day. Please call 817.989.5036 or email schooltours@cartermuseum.org for more information.
