One of the greatest things about living in the Trinity Bluff apartment community is how near it is to local attractions like the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. Founded in the early 1960’s to house collections of paintings from Frederic Remington and Charles M Russell, the Amon Carter Museum is now home to dozens of permanent and changing exhibitions showcasing the finest examples of American Art.
One of the special exhibitions for this year, running from February 21st through August 23rd, features photography of Edward and Brett Weston. “Like Father, Like Son” includes almost two dozen images spanning the careers of both artists and is a great way to be introduced to them if you’ve never seen them before or get a deeper look at their work and compare their different styles as they are presented to close together.
The Amon Carter Museum is located on Camp Bowie Boulevard and is open from 10am until 5pm Tuesdays through Saturdays and from noon til 5pm on Sundays. Admission is free so there is no reason not to visit the next chance you get! For more information about museums in the area or our community in general, please contact us today!
