Thoughts of Fort Worth readily bring to mind images of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, cowboys, and cattle drives (occurring twice daily in the city’s historic Stockyards). For that reason, Fort Worth has earned such soubriquets as “Cowtown”, “Where the West Begins”, and, more than a little surprisingly, “The Museum Capital of the Southwest”. Though the vision of longhorns being led down Exchange Avenue may be an expected sight for visitors of Fort Worth, the city’s cultural district proves to be as surprising as it is magnificent. Each impressive in their respective architecture, the five primary museums encompassing the cultural district include the Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Casa Ma-ana, the Amon Carter Museum, and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and Natural History. Additionally, countless galleries in and around the cultural district reflect both the city’s pride in its western heritage as well as the diversity of its artists. Galleries of note include Art on the Boulevard, Art Space 111, Dow Art Galleries, the Edmund Craig Gallery, Gallery 414, and Milan Gallery. Finally, events such as the Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival and the Cottonwood Arts Festival (located in nearby Richardson) both draw thousands each year in a celebration of local, national, and international artistry. Fort Worth’s cultural richness, a testament of its past and present, is the ideal environment for a student seeking an education in the arts in one of the Southwest’s most legendary cities.
