Terri Thornton, artist, Fort Worth

Moderated by George T. M. Shackelford, deputy director


What does the art of the past mean to the artist of the present? In this ongoing program, moderated by Kimbell staff, artists and architects discuss works in the museum’s collection, share the special insights of the practicing professional, and relate older art to contemporary artistic concerns, including their own.

Native Texan Terri Thornton is an artist, educator, and curator. Her works often combine drawings based on keen, even minute, observation with the precise and sparing use of texts. Quiet and composed, her drawings, text-based works, and installations oblige the viewer to stop, to look closely, and to think carefully.
