Visitors to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will receive free admission to the Museum's permanent collection and the special exhibition FOCUS: Barry McGee on Saturday, May 18, in honor of the Association of Art Museum Directors' (AAMD) Art Museum Day. The Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Museum guests can take advantage of an architecture tour at 11 a.m., a permanent collection tour at 2 p.m., or visit with "Ask Me" docents stationed throughout the galleries between noon and 2 p.m.

The Modern is a small part of the nearly 120 AAMD member museums across North America celebrating the annual event. AAMD's Art Museum Day coincides with International Museum Day, which is organized every year around the world by the International Council of Museums. Scattered across the United States, Mexico, and Canada, the AAMD member participants include smaller regional museums and leading international institutions. Participation of the many museums emphasizes the lasting impact art museums have on their communities and highlights the significance of visual art on society, while providing an array of opportunities for audiences to interact with the unique programs that art museums offer.
