Several art galleries including The Edmund Craig Gallery line West Seventh Street in Fort Worth's Cultural District.
Sunday--The Cultural Side of Cowtown
Sleep late, and begin your day with brunch at Café Modern (11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.), one of the most unique dining experiences in town. Just inside the Modern Art Museum, the elliptical dining room faces the museum's reflecting pond. Try the Seared Crab Cake ($7) or the Modern Omelet filled with Brie, garlic asparagus, and red pepper sauce ($11).
You may want to slip back over to the Stockyards for Cowboy Church at Stockyards Station. George Westby leads the lively nondenominational
service that starts at noon and is come-as-you-are casual. "We celebrate the spirit of the cowboy with old hymns and a short
sermon," explains George in his fancy minister's garb--jeans and a cowboy hat.
Spend the rest of the afternoon strolling through the awesome museums that are clustered in the Cultural District. The Amon
Carter Museum (free admission to the permanent collection) boasts an extensive collection of Western art, including several
works by Frederic Remington and Charles Russell. Find the Masters such as Cézanne, Matisse, and Monet at the Kimbell Art Museum
(free admission to the permanent collection); and discover post-World War II pieces from Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol at
the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth ($6 adults, $4 students, free ages 12 and under).
You hardly noticed how hot it was, did you?
