What a Great Year!

We had many friends–old and new–visit our museum in 2009. Almost 20,000 students had a conversation about great American art in our galleries; about 6,500 visitors stopped by for a docent-led tour of our permanent collection or a visiting exhibition; and over 2,500 visitors enjoyed our five Family Fundays.

We welcomed many a virtual visitor too! Our distance learning program reached over 15,000 students. We now have over 700 Facebook fans, and 2,700 folks follow the museum on Twitter. Our Web site gets hundreds of thousands of hits each year.

All in all, we were busy, and now we’re working on making next year even better. Join us here in Fort Worth or online as the Carter Gets Modern in 2010.

Happy New Year!


Those are very impressive numbers for a very impressive education department. Way to go! I can't wait to Get Modern in 2010!--sk

Thanks, Sara! Be sure to bring your young 'uns to our Family Fun Day on the 11th. It's all about art in the dark - only not spooky.

My apologies. The next Family Fun Day will be on January 10th, not the 11th. I hope to see you there.
