Guitar:

The Instrument That Rocked The World

I

Exhibit Opens February 10 at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

It is the single most enduring icon in American history. The Guitar. Not the baseball, football, hamburger nor the sports car provokes a response like the guitar. The guitar is about more than just popular music. The guitar is an integral part of American history. The Spanish brought the first guitars here in the late 1500s, and the English brought their own versions on the boats that followed the Mayflower. It has been part of our heritage for longer than almost any other cultural icon. Every year, there are over 3 million new guitars sold in the United States alone. That’s more than all other instruments combined. Beginning Saturday, February 10 you can explore this storied past in Guitar: The Instrument That Rocked The World in the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s Havener Gallery. This 7,500-foot traveling exhibition takes visitors on a fascinating exploration of the science, sound, history and pop culture behind the world’s favorite instrument. Immersed in a unique collection of instru-

ments and hands-on interactives, it’s an exhibition that is engaging, educational and entertaining for all ages. Packed with STEAM-based elements, GUITAR introduces visitors to concepts including electromagnetism, sound waves, frequency, decibel levels, mathematical scales, engineering design and materials—along with amplification, memory skills and performance. GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World is a touring exhibit produced by The National GUITAR Museum. The NGM was founded to promote and preserve the


legacy of the guitar and is the world’s first museum dedicated to the history, science, evolution and cultural impact of the guitar. The National GUITAR Museum is overseen by its executive director, H.P. Newquist, and is supported by curators, designers, museum professionals and a Board of Advisors. “The people at The National GUITAR Museum are all passionate about the guitar,” said executive director H.P. Newquist. “We’ve assembled an incredible team of people to create the basis for what will become the first national museum to encompass and explore every element of the guitar, from its creation to its impact on modern culture.”

GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World features more than 70 guitars. Visitors will encounter acoustic and electric guitars and guitars that are antique, historic and unusual. For example, the world’s largest playable guitar, certified by the Guinness Book of Records, is one of the highlights of the exhibition. At more than 43-feet long, it commands center stage! Other guitar memorabilia, video displays featuring guitars from the collection and performance photographs, graphics and banners from memorable venues are also featured. The Museum is also collaborating with the Fort Worth CVB and Hear Fort Worth, to present a look at the history of music in Fort Worth. Archival photography and biographies on a unique timeline bring to life contributions of music icons from Bob Wills to Leon Bridges. The celebration of music continues in the Museum’s Omni Theater, an IMAX® dome with the premiere of America’s Musical Journey on February 16. The film, narrated by Morgan Freeman, celebrates the unique diversity of cultures and creative risk-taking that characterizes America, told through the story of its music.

America’s Musical Journey follows Grammy Award® nominated singer and songwriter, Aloe Blacc, as he traces the roots of America’s music and follows the footsteps of Louis Armstrong through the colorful locales and cultures where America’s music was born. Visiting cities such as New Orleans, Chicago, New York City, Nashville, Memphis, Miami and more, audiences will experience uniquely American adventures such as paddle-wheel boating up the Mississippi Delta, flash mob dancing in Chicago and skydiving with Elvis impersonators in scenes shot exclusively for the giant screen. As audiences join Blacc on a joyful, tunefilled tour of the nation’s most iconic music

cities, they’ll discover the unique collision of cultures that gave birth to America’s diverse musical heritage. America’s Musical Journey is a MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and presented by Expedia. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays noon-5 p.m. The Museum is open daily, with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. Show times for the Omni Theater and Noble Planetarium vary. Purchase tickets in advance online at fortworthmuseum. org or by calling 817-255-9540. Fe b r u a r y 2 0 1 8

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!

nobody. No, really, that’s an undisputed fact. But just as she’s starting her sophomore year, she gets the notion that she should try to stand out somehow before it’s too late.

us together or is that only a myth? Ticket prices, performance dates and times vary. For more information, www.circletheatre.com. 230 West Fourth Street in Sundance Square. Through Feb. 25 Jubilee Theatre presents Detroit ’67. It’s 1967 and the world is shifting for two siblings, who are running an after-hours joint in their basement to make ends meet. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, tensions mount when their tight-knit community is threatened and the streets erupt in violence. This riveting play is set to a driving ’60s Motown beat. Contains adult language and themes, for patrons 14+. Performance times vary. For tickets and additional information, www.jubileetheatre.org. 506 Main St. Through Mar. 18 “FOCUS: Nina Chanel Abney” exhibit at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Chanel Abney’s paintings are visually frenetic, reflecting the fast-paced energy of life today. Her imagery refers to such diverse subjects as pop culture, world events, and art history in compositions with flattened, simplified forms. Tickets $10 adults, 13+, $4 students with ID & seniors 60+. Free for children 12 & under and Modern members. Hrs. Tues., Fri., Sun. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Wed., Thurs., Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., closed Mon.

The blocks of stone seemingly speak essential truths—such as language from American founding documents, various militias and splinter group manifestos, and parts of the inscription on the Statue of Liberty—uniting fundamental phrases intended for entirely different purposes and obscuring their original meanings. 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. Through June 17 “In Her Image: Photographs by Rania Matar” exhibit at The Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

information, 817-738-1933, www.cartermuseum.org/exhibitions. 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd. Through Sept. 2 “Gabriel Dawe: Plexus no. 34” is at Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The Amon Carter has commissioned a large scale, site-specific installation of more than eighty miles of multicolored thread by internationally celebrated Mexican born, Dallas based artist Gabriel Dawe. Words cannot do justice to the transformative power of Dawe’s sculptural marvels, which he weaves from thousands of thin strands. They look like frozen light and Technicolor vaporous mist, drawing attention to the majestic architecture and natural light of the museum’s Atrium. Admission free. 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. 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.
