On a perfect spring night in April we visited The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth with some friends. The event that brought us out was Modern ’til Midnight, a fun-filled evening of art, live music, and drinks on the lawn.
The exhibit was a collection of 75 works that began in 1956 when he took his first road trip from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles. His love of driving is portrayed in his images of things he encountered along the roads of the Western United States. Many of his images are gasoline stations, Los Angeles apartments, parking lots, and buildings on the Sunset Strip.
Seeing pictures of places in Los Angeles, that my husband was familiar with, captivated our interests. The exhibit was wonderfully intriguing.
When they began to turn the lights off on us we made our way back downstairs for the cash bar and music on the lawn. The music line-up included The Cush, The Burning Hotels, and This Will Destroy You.
The stage was set-up on the lake of The Modern while dozens of people were lounging on the lawn. The music was wonderful and the cool spring breeze was relaxing. However, the couple in front of us wrapped in a blanket and rolling around on the ground making-out was not as wonderful.
