FORT WORTH, TX—To celebrate its golden anniversary, the Kimbell Art Museum invites visitors – past and present – to share the memories they have made at the museum since its public opening in 1972. Submissions will inspire the development of “Kimbell Stories,” a limited documentary web series that will explore the extraordinary power of art and design.
“For nearly half a century, the Kimbell has welcomed visitors from Fort Worth and around the world to experience incredible art in an unparalleled setting. During this landmark anniversary, we want to acknowledge and celebrate the very people who have shaped the Kimbell into the enduring place of inspiration that it is today,” says Eric M. Lee, director of the Kimbell Art Museum.
Since opening 50 years ago, the Kimbell’s iconic architecture, outstanding permanent collection and influential special exhibitions have served as the backdrop for visitors’ important moments and milestones. From first dates and engagements to impactful art encounters and experiences, the Kimbell continues to be a place where meaningful experiences can happen. “Kimbell Stories” will showcase a diverse collection of memories and celebrate the transcendent power of art – all through the eyes of museum visitors.
For the opportunity to be featured, visitors are encouraged to submit their Kimbell Stories at kimbellart.org/50. Submissions through May 31, 2022 will be entered for a chance to win a year-long family membership. The winner will be announced on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at the 50th Anniversary Family Festival & Celebration.
