This Mother’s Day weekend, celebrate all of the mighty moms and gifted girls you know during the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s free Fierce Female festival Saturday, May 12 from 11 a.m.–4 p.m.
Honor the women in your life during a day of free programs exploring works of art of and by women, including exhibitions by Lebanese-American photographer Rania Matar, experimental photographer Ellen Carey, and a group of Texas-based women sculptors. Listen to the sounds of the collection during an a cappella performance from the vocal ensemble VOICES of Fort Worth performing pieces inspired by the art at the Amon Carter. Get to know women in American art on a free docent-guided tour, pose for your own mother-daughter photo inspired by work on view in In Her Image, take an interactive artist personality quiz to discover your artistic match, and get crafty at the button-making station. Learn how Diana received her new goddess glow after undergoing conservation during a conversation with Amon Carter curator Maggie Adler, and then get your own goddess garb from Fort Worth-based Trust Printshop during their live screen printing of exclusively designed T-shirts. Head outside and test your skills with games on the lawn before grabbing a bite to eat from a selection of local food trucks.
Fierce Female programming, special exhibitions and access to the Amon Carter collection are included in the museum’s free admission. Dining options from local food trucks, onsite from 11 a.m.–2 p.m., and the shirts from Trust Printshop will be available for purchase.
