Art that moves you ('cause it's on a bus!)

Amoncartermuseum2 Some rather moving pieces of art have been spotted on the Fort Worth streets.

Three T buses have been wrapped with images depicting collections from the Amon Carter Museum, Kimball Art Museum and Modern Art Museum. They’re making the rounds as part of a promotion between those art institutions and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority.Kimbell 1

The images include Wrapped Oranges from the Carter, Carravaggio’s The Cardsharps from the Kimbell and Conjoined from the Modern.

Modern 2
The idea is to encourage folks to ride the T to the cultural district. A bus pass will get riders a $2 discount at the Modern and 10 percent off Kimbell and Carter museum stores during November. Admission to the Carter is free, and the Kimbell’s permanent collection is free and the Modern is free the first Sunday of the month. Route 2 Camp Bowie is the best way to get to the museums. Route 7 is an option on Saturdays.

In Texas you are issued two license plates and you must have both on your vehicle. Sorry you don't think it looks good, but that's the law, and I wish every person who didn't display both plates or display them correctly would be issued citations.
