An Art Show From The Comfort of Your Car
Clear Channel and The Modern in Fort Worth exhibit art from the comfort of your car
Clear Channel Outdoor and The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth teamed up for emerging artists to present examples of their work and providing an opportunity for contemporary art in urban landscapes. The program provides OOH space to area grad students.
The billboard format allowed a public exhibition platform for under-recognized artists displaying their works to be viewed in isolation, from vehicle windows or computer monitors.
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is dedicated to collecting, presenting, and interpreting international developments in post–World War II art in all media. The collection of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is comprised of nearly 3,000 objects, including paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, and prints. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest art museum in Texas and one of the oldest museums in the western United States.
