Takashi Murakami comes to Fort Worth

The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg
June 10 – September 16

I have told you before and this exhibit supports my claim that Fort Worth offers world class art. This exhibit will appeal to such a vast array of people that it is taking the art world by storm. The influences reflected in his work is part of what will draw such a wide audience.

The colorful, vibrant show is of “characters inspired by folklore, art, history and popular culture.” It spans 30 years of work that has evolved through personal experiences, training and other artist partnerships. Murakami has collaborated with a variety of artists and designers, including Louis Vuitton and Kanye West.

This exhibit includes never before seen art created especially for this show. Be warned there are areas that are not suitable for children due to nudity and/or graphics.

This is the quality of art that supports tagline for Fort Worth, “City of Cowboys and Culture”.

Please note the special pricing during this exhibit. Beginning June 10 through September 16, 2018, the Museum will offer half-price tickets on Sundays and free admission on Fridays. 

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, as part of Blue Star Museums, does offer free admission to active duty military personnel and their families this summer from Memorial Day through Labor Day (May 29-September 2).

Combining my love of writing and live theater I began publishing with Examiner.com in 2009. Since that time I have expanded my contributions to numerous forms of live entertainment, film and much more. In July of 2016 Examiner.com shut down their website. I decided to continue exploring and sharing my adventures through my own blogging site. Becoming a resource for my audience seeking entertainment options in the DFW area is a top priority.
