Native Prairies Association of Texas, Fort Worth Chapter: Trespassers Exhibit Guided Tour - Fort Worth

Jan 13 2023 - 2:00pm
Amon Carter Museum of American Art
3501 Camp Bowie Blvd
Fort Worth , TX

Connecticut artist, writer and naturalist James Prosek's interest in prairies led him to the Texas Hill Country, LBJ National Grasslands and Clymer Meadow in search of understanding. His visit inspired 20 plus new works in various media which are currently on display in a special exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. 

The Fort Worth Chapter of the Native Prairies Association of Texas invites you to join us on a docent-guided tour of the exhibit. Registration is required as our group size is limited due to the intimate exhibit space. There's no charge to attend, but donations to support NPAT's work in North Texas are gratefully accepted.
