West is Among the Best for Culture and Shopping-and-Dining Delights

A

by Michael H. Price

As long as we’re “out where the West begins,” as an iconic figure in Fort Worth’s history described this Cowtown, then we might as well look even further westward within the city itself. Pioneering publisher and civic booster Amon Carter may have intended to give Dallas the razz when he coined that phrase — but the West hardly could have picked a keener starting point than Fort Worth. And Fort Worth, in turn, hardly could have picked a site more right for its burgeoning west side Cultural District. Rippling with heavy-duty commercial, artistic and residential growth since the dawn of the 21st century, the west side overall has seen its very skyline change with the transformation of a busy West Seventh Street into a streamlined conduit connecting the downtown area’s Sundance Square development with the Cultural District. Heading west (naturally) from downtown Fort Worth, one finds the Cultural District radiating from the intersection where Seventh Street crosses University Drive and, in the process, morphs into the historic, brick-paved Camp Bowie Boulevard. Visitors in search of western-style discoveries — from plain-and-fancy dining to fine art and varied entertainment — will find such delights in volume on the west side. Cultural attractions, restaurants, mainstream and special-interest shopping, and lavish natural gardens flourish as a reminder of how Fort Worth has built upon its frontier origins. Several of the world’s finer museums, playhouses and galleries anchor a vast Cultural District. The hand-laid red-brick pavement of Camp Bowie Boulevard is an attraction in itself, lined with an everexpanding array of art galleries, stage-andscreen auditoriums, boutiques, scholarly museums, restaurants and lounges, and shopping malls. 6

The Cultural District The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History, commands the westward view of the district from Montgomery Street and just northward are additional cultural touchstones: Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, houses a definitive collection of American paintings, photography, and sculpture. The collection spans early nineteenth-century art to mid-twentieth century modernism. It is also home to nearly 400 works by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Near by is the Kimbell Art Museum still living up to Newsweek’s description as “arguably the most beautiful museum in America” including its new Renzo Piano Pavilion addition. The neighboring Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest such museum in Texas — housed in a workof-art 2002 building designed by worldrenowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and featuring bold gallery exhibitions, concert attractions and, every weekend, leading-edge independent-studio films. The Museum of Science & History, anchoring a campus within the Cultural District, has been designed by similarly renowned architects Ricardo and Victor Legorreta. Inside the Museum of Science & History, one finds vast galleries of Texas-bred dinosaur specimens and the state’s oil-and-gas heritage, in addition to the Cattle Raisers Museum, the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, Stars Café, and a new digital Noble Planetarium. The Omni Theater, an IMAX® superscreen dome, links with the Museum of Science & History and boasts a new digital sound system and enhanced lighting.The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is next door to the FMS&H. The NCM&HF honors women of the American West from

those who have lived and worked on ranches or who led an expedition, or sat before an easel, aimed a rifle and hit the bull’s eye, or sat on the Supreme Court. When the museum meanderings trigger an appetite for fine dining, two long-established, museum-based cafés stand ready to serve. The Kimbell Buffet Restaurant offers indoor or patio lunch and a light evening menu within one of the most beautiful modern buildings in America. The Modern Art Museum’s 250-seat Café Modern, with an outdoor terrace, overlooks a serene reflecting pond. The Modern’s full-service kitchen delivers superb cuisine for lunch, Sunday brunch, and scheduled seasonal dinners. The Great Outdoors offers breakfast subs, lunch and dinner subs, soups, salads and all natural ice cream. Off University on White Settlement Road, a Texas barbecue tradition reigns at Angelo’s, offering a half-century of first-class BBQ and ultra-chilled beer. The Fort Worth Community Art Center, at the district’s western edge, showcases work by the city’s homegrown community of artists, in addition to live-theater venues. Neighboring the museum community is the city’s landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center, a versatile 85-acre entertainment complex — with 45 acres housing the Will Rogers Coliseum & Auditorium. Its majestic Pioneer Tower dates from the Texas Centennial Celebration of 1936. Still the most imposing site within the district, the coliseum holds pride of place as the first domed structure of its kind in the world. The complex also boasts an equestrian center and exhibit halls, home to the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Showplaces of Heritage and Artistry and Nature Shoppers can find a broad selection of merchandise in the Cultural District’s specialty shops. European antiques and upholstery can be found at Domain XCIV and the dh collection boasts progressive furniture designs in an appetite-whetting environment. 8

Southward off University Drive, visitors can experience the glories of nature at Trinity Park, a pristine oasis bordered by a fork of the placid Trinity River. Here, picnickers, joggers, and strollers can explore meandering pathways or travel on a miniature railroad. Opposite the park, across University Drive, Fort Worth’s Botanic Garden beckons — the oldest such site in Texas, a lush 109-acre tapestry of dappled shade accented by vibrant splashes of color. The Garden is home to thousands of species of native and exotic plants in 21 specialty gardens. The European-designed Rose Garden features more than 3,400 roses, and the 10,000-square-foot Conservatory houses tropical flowers and foliage from around the world. An on-site Gardens Restaurant serves light lunches and refreshments — with a view of the Garden and a varied gallery that often displays the work of local artists. Adjacent to the Botanic Garden is the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) whose mission is to “reduce its footprint on the natural world as well as protect and restore ecosystem services.” BRIT’s building was designed as an example of how much of this can be accomplished. A short distance southward lies the illustrious Fort Worth Zoo, nationally ranked among the finest. The Zoo is home to thousands of animals, both native and exotic. Viewing facilities and natural habitat exhibits are set up for optimal views of the animals, often separated from their observers by only a river, a waterfall, or a large window. Shaded rest spots and picnic tables are available, with several on-site eateries. Across from the Zoo, Log Cabin Village offers another view of the city’s rich frontier history boasting seven authentic log homes, dating from the mid-to-late 1800s. Perioddressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin offering a living history of the home and its origin. The mood to explore might be triggered by art, dining, shopping, or the wonders of nature. Fort Worth’s west side meets all these interests and then some!

Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. Where to Find it: 701 Galveston Ave. Paleta de Mango is a good entrée into this world of chili-meets-mango fusion. The hazy orange ale has a welcome kick of ripe mango that’s amped up with a tinge of chili heat on the back end. Adiós Pantalones leaves one pining for warmer poolside days to come. The crisp cerveza has just the perfect kiss of lemon zest to make this lager as delicious as it is drinkable.

The site was used as the backdrop for some scenes from the film Logan’s Run in 1976. 1502 Commerce St., Hrs. 7 a.m.11:30 p.m. Information: 817-392-7111; reservations 817-392-5718.

Spanning painting, sculpture, collage, and installation, Kamrooz Aram’s work investigates the complex relationship between Western modernism and classical non-Western art.

Tues.-Thurs. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Fri. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sat. & Sun. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., closed Mon.

Through Sept. 9 The Sid Richardson Museum’s focus exhibition, “Frederic Remington: Altered States,” tells the provocative story of three of his paintings from the museum’s collection that were altered after completion. One demonstrates a change made by Remington, one demonstrates fraudulence and one remains a mystery. The exhibition explores the ways in which scholarship and scientific conservation methods contributed to the discovery of those alterations. “This focus exhibition is for anyone who loves a mystery,” said director Mary Burke. Visitors can also examine two different castings of Remington’s bronze “The Rattlesnake.” “Frederic Remington: Altered States” runs concurrently with the “Legacy” exhibition. “Legacy” depicts the clash of cultures of the 19th century American West, conflicts among cowboys, soldiers, explorers and Indigenous Americans during westward expansion. Hrs. Mon.-Thurs. 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m. Free admission and free tours. Free valet parking in Sundance Square. For information, visit www.sidrichardsonmuseum. org or call 817-332-6554. 309 Main Street in Sundance Square. Through Nov. 10 Lone Star Murder Mysteries presents Mein Shaft. Grab your shovels and watch your step! A millionaire silver miner, John Schmidt, has been murdered and Marshal Jim Courtright must dig for clues to find out who got the shaft. Might Kit, his wife, may be working the mine for her own benefit? Or maybe it was Katherine, the new gentlelady in town with an affinity for rich men and all things silver. Perhaps the eccentric Scotsman, McPhiggis, was aiming for revenge. It’s a safe bet that with a cast of suspects as dangerous as a mine car filled with black powder, trouble is bound to explode! $59.95 per person for entertainment and dinner. For more information, 817-310-5588, www.texasstardinnertheater.com/2018show.php. 816 S. Main St., Grapevine, TX 76051. Through Nov. 18 The Amon Carter Museum of American Art presents the exhibit “Commanding Space: Women Sculptors of Texas.” The evocative power of sculpture seems boundless in the hands of five living women artists whose work fills the Amon Carter’s gallery dedicated to regional artwork. Texas-based artists Celia Eberle, Kana Harada, Sharon Kopriva, Sherry Owens, and Linda Ridgway take the traditions of sculpture in new directions for the 21st century. Hrs. Tues., Wed., Fri., Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thurs. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m., closed Mon. For more information, 817-738-1933, www. cartermuseum.org/exhibitions. 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd.
