Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson (1906–2005), the Amon Carter Museum of American Art houses a preeminent collection of American art including painting, sculpture, and works on paper; it has been a Fort Worth institution since 1961.

The collection spans early 19-century expeditionary art to mid-20th century modernism and includes masterworks by artists such as Frederic Church, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeffe, and John Singer Sargent.

The museum is one of the nation's major repositories of American photography and holds the archives of luminaries such as Nell Dorr, Laura Gilpin, Eliot Porter, and Karl Struss. The Amon Carter is also home to nearly 400 works by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, the two greatest artists of the American West.

Complementing the museum’s art collection and international-style architecture, visitors may access an outstanding research library or shop for art-inspired products in the Museum Store.

Now in its sixth decade of operation, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art offers a diverse array of exhibitions, publications, and programs that connect visitors to masterworks of American art.

This venue can accommodate children with special needs.

The Amon Carter has accessible parking and a barrier-free entrance on Lancaster Avenue. Wheelchairs and assistive listening devices are available for free use while at the museum. For more information, call 817/989-5030 or email visitors@cartermuseum.org.
